I'm also curious if there was a band on Britannic to entertain the wounded?

There wasn't a WSL band according to the crew list. However, there were many pianos onboard and concerts were frequently organized by the RAMC staff.

no there was no band on the Britannic because she was commissioned as a world war 1 hospital ship if she was used for a cruise ship like what she built for than she would have had a band

Given Olympic's experience, Britannic would likely have been used for cruises from time to time, but neither of them was ever called a "cruise ship." That's a modern term, used to describe ships built for a different purpose than early 20th century ocean liners.
