One of the 'threats' used on the NATCHEZ when there is such a band on a charter: we'll be switching to shore power shortly after we dock. That might affect (blow out) all your electronic stuff. That works. And of course, on any last trip of the day when its announced "Ok Chief, switch", and the lights go out momentarily while the shore power is connected, the passengers think its just a 'hint' for them to leave. Whatever works! Regarding that pix of the ADMIRAL's dance floor: I remember how cold the AC was in there in July, the blueish/gray bulkheads, and the 3rd deck balcony ice cream parlor. Does anybody recall bands that played on there in the late '50s? I know Bob Kuban had the house band in her last years, but am blank before him.
