    A JVM410 full stack and you've got all you need for whatever comes though that door.

    I was going to say a Boogie Filmore 50. But if that costs too much a Fender Hotrod Deluxe. I used to use backlines all the time and ended up usually with a silver face twin which I always had to use a pedal for an overdrive generator which i HATED and still do. These are two good amps that can do a good representation of what probably anyone wants to do.

    I assume you will be presenting a wide variety of styles, so I would be wary of amps that are primarily known for crunch or high gain. A Twin or similar amp can do a good clean Fender sound but still work well enough for hard rock with a pedal in front. If someone does need a high gain sound and is traveling without an amp, I assume they will have a suitable pedal.

    Marshall JCM 900 Dual Reverb or Mesa Rectoverb. Both have good cleans, and can get nice distortion tones.

    This is a dumb question, I know; but what is IR?

    You may want to consider that tube amps require maintenance. And if left off and unplugged foe lengths of time. Should be slowly charged to prevent shocking the caps by throwing high voltage at empty caps. If it were my money. I would be taking these things into account.

    I'd vote either DSL half stack or (and I almost hate suggesting this) a used mini Rectifier half stack. Either of those can cover gainy tones themselves but also have good enough clean channels to be good pedal platforms.
