Famous Local Faces Help Honor Titanic Band

BRANSON, MO -- Violinists and fiddler players from around the Ozarks gathered for a Super Photo Shoot at the Titanic Museum in Branson on Wednesday.

The photo shoot included entertainers from Branson, including Shoji Tabuchi, the Duttons, the Haygoods and more.

The attraction's co-owner says the gathering is to honor the eight members of the heroic Titanic band.

"That night, none of the musicians survived," said Titanic employee Jamie Terrell. "And we think that when the music stopped, the legend began. And the show must go on. We all know that. And we know that these musicians feel the same way. And we're honored that they chose to come today and be part of history with us."

The museum is currently displaying the violin that belonged to the Titanic's band leader, Wallace Hartley. It was auctioned in 2013 for $1.7 million, which is the highest dollar amount ever paid for a Titanic artifact. The violin will be on display at the museum through Memorial Day.
