Friends, family and fans gathered to celebrate with the members of Ray Burnette and the Moonlighters on March 30, as a display following the band’s history was unveiled at the Jeff Matthews Memorial Museum in Galax.
Ray Burnette and the Moonlighters formed in the late 1960s and performed until the early 1980s.
They were a variety band, “playing country, country rock, rockabilly, bluegrass, gospel or whatever people wanted to hear,” said drummer Jim Doane of Galax.
