Default Most Famous Cruise Ship Band !!!

no..not Paul's garage bandthe orchestra on the Titanic...a new book "Band That Played On" by Steve Turner explores how the 8 musicians came about playing on that fateful voyage and also raises questions about whether the last song they played while the Titanic was sinking was 'Nearer My God To The" I'm going to purchase the book and give a review

in today's modern cruise ship cross training emergency proceedures, I would think the musicians would be assisting guests to their lifeboats, but after watching the James Cameron movie I've always been curious as to why they stayed at their post..maybe the book will provide some insight
