>>>We did not have electricity for the keyboard and amp, so I bought a
"power pac" at Costco, which I now recommend to any band that does outdoor
work, not always close to electricity.  It's heavy, but a great accessory
to power up mics   and electronic equipment.  One note, a guitarist on one
gig discovered his old "tube" amp buzzed with this power source, but the
fully "chipped" amps were OK.

What a great idea and the unit I found on the Costco website is certainly
affordable. They offer a 300 Watt Portable Powerpack @ $79.99 + shipping.

Can anyone advise if this would be sufficient to power a keyboard, 2
portable amp/speakers, and a couple of mics for 2 hours?
