VF is right, a simple PA is all you really need. the example provided would be fantastic for a small two piece, but if you plan on expanding your band in the near future it might be better to spend some of that cash on a rental and save for a bigger unit in the future.

most local shops offer rentals. SPECIFY that you want a rental. don't dump good cash on anything major yet. especially where your show is in a few days, now is not the best time to be buying. use this gig as a learning exercise. see if you can rent something similar to that example PA, that way you'll have a good idea of whether or not that system can push enough sound for the crowds you'll be drawing.
