I have this gig on Sunday and would like to keep gear to a minimum. Would a Boss Katana 50 be loud enough to keep up with a loud drummer?

ps - It's rockabilly style music with a bit more overdrive than traditional rockabilly (it's the subgenre I came up with called Gospelbilly).

Thanks Peegoo!

Now I just need to see if I can tweak a decent slap-back delay on it.

FWIW, I have the Boss Nextone Stage 40w and Roland Blues Cube Artist 80w but haven’t needed “full power” with either, and the drummer can get pretty loud at times.

Albeit this has been in a rehearsal studio, not a gig.

UPDATE - The Katana 50 was loud enough, but I didn't care for my tone that much.

I didn't spend enough time tweaking and trying out the different amp types. I used the "crunch" setting with medium gain and used the tap tempo to create a slap back echo.

I DID get the job done, however.

I run clean on my Katana 50 and add the green boost to taste. Anything more gets a bit too muddy. Run on 25 watt setting, master at half. Played out twice with it and always heard.

I used my Marshall DSL100 head (set at half power) and 1936 2x12 cab for the show I played last week with another band and all I can say as I sure prefer tube amps.

That said, I wouldn't use that Marshall on a rockabilly or alt country gig.
