What band played in 2nd class

Same band that played in 1st Class. In some of the German liners the band played occasionally also in 3rd Class, but the WSL didn't stretch to that.

See Daniel Klisthorner's postings in this thread:

 
That was it? They were supposed to play only 2 hours a day? And maybe Sunday morning? Thanks by the way!

In total they played about 6 hours per day. (If my memory is right on Cunard Line ships the band played more hours.)
But they would also play music during a charitable concerts. Not sure what you mean with Sunday morning. If you mean for example the Divine service, only the piano was used in the 1st class Dining saloon.
 
I don't understand, you wrote that they played from 20.00 to 22.00, and now that they played 6 hours?

Yes, I meant for the Divine Service, I didn't know only the piano was used.
 
Sorry if I'm being dense, but I just cannot understand. You wrote this:

They played from about 8-9 p.m. in the 1st class reception room and from 9-10 p.m. in the 2nd class Entrance.
Then told me that you were talking about dinner time, and that they played 3 hours in the first class and 3 hours in the second.
So basically they played from 8-10 pm every day + other non-specified 4 hours, for a total of 6?

Ana,
in your first post which I reply to you wrote;

Play first during the first class' dinner then during the second?

As you wrote dinner, I though you were asking about during dinner time in the evening and gave you the information that the band did not play during dinner and that they played from 8-9 p.m. in the 1st class reception room and 9-10 p.m. in the 2nd class entrance. These were 2 hours they played each evening. The also played 2 hours about noon and 2 hours in the morning a total of 6 hours per day.
Hope that helps!
 
Thanks Bob, I'm guessing Krins was the Bandmaster, was the Cafe Francais and the A La Carte Restaurant the same?? i doubt they are it's just that there are testimonies about there being a band near the A La Carte restaurant but it says that these played in Cafe Francais
Thanks
Matteo :)
