4/14/12 Titanic Dinner

After Matt & Amanda's Wedding reception I drove to the North Side where we were honored to play for a recreation of the last dinner on the Titanic at the home of John DeSantis.  He has been having us play for his Twelfth Night Of Christmas party for many years so we knew this would be great.  Our Harpist Marissa Knaub played through Cocktails, then Charles and Mary May played Violin and Cello Duets through Dinner, followed by my Vienna Night Orchestra for dancing until the wee hours. In addition to light Classical pieces and Viennese waltzes we enjoyed hearing those Americana favorites with fuller orchestration than we use on our AAA Bus Tour Titanic Dinner Adventiure shows. "Oh, You Beautiful Doll", "Bill Bailey", "Come, Josephine", "Beautiful Dreamer", "Moonlight Bay", "You Made Me Love You", "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" and finally at 1:10 AM we finished with a reverential "Nearer My God To Thee".  It was like a time capsule opened and we stepped back 100 years.
