The Raybeats Go On

Julie Panebianco, Boston Rock, 21 January 1982

IT REMINDS you of a movie. Doris Day goes, by accident of course, probably after a fight with Rock Hudson, to a party. In the center of a wildly dancing crowd is a band dressed in pink pants, black shirts, white ties, grey jackets, and dark sunglasses. A large, cartoon lettered sign hangs behind them: The Raybeats.
