For blues jams, I would recommend an amp. I have a 50 watt Fender and it's 
way too loud. Seriously I can be heard a mile away playing outside with the 
amp turned up to 5. The silver face Fenders (early 70s) are a good deal. Try 
a Princeton or a Pro Reverb. You can usually get them realitively 
inexpensive and they're quality amps.Put the amp off to one side so it won't 
feed back. 

If the band is loud and busy, comp with octaves. I mostly play bluz raaawk 
and some solid tongue block comping with an occasional Popper like high run 
will work fine.
