I'm playing bass in a 60s band tonight, and my amp - a Carvin X60 has one 12" 8 ohm 100 watt speaker. It has the facility to plug in a second speaker in parallel, so if I use a second 8 ohm speaker presumably I need to change the impedance switch to 4 ohms. Probably obvious but thought I'd check first. It will not be mic'd up so I'll need to push some air and fear for the single speaker in the amp.

You're right. Parallel two 8ohm speakers gets you 4ohms. Good luck on the gig.
