If your mixing device can attenuate down enough, and you ru the headphone output very low, it will work. I have had to do this with many small keyboards and circuit bent speak/ spells.

If I am not mistaken, that is the amp that my son uses when he does street gigs--separate channel for guitar and vox.

I don't know about quiet cafes, but it is the best in its class for noisy street corners.
