Mid Ocean News:
Lynda Barnes Lovett “is absolutely brilliant (and I do mean incredibly talented) keyboard player/chanteuse and she was totally responsible for the huge success that the later morning/afternoon/evening [party from 11am to midnight] turned out to be. We congregated around the keyboard to sing. This went on for hours. By this stage, every single girlie had let her down her hair to its fullest extent and it was time to really get down and party and to let the east end of Front Street know there was a major concert in progress.” Mid Ocean News , Dec. 19, 2003, by Sharleen Wilson Carr.
The Royal Gazette
Lynda Barnes Lovett has “no trouble overlaying spoofy, wine and drinking-related lyrics to familiar tunes as well as writing her own songs on topics people relate to.” Her CD, Party With No Fear, “is a must for all party animals, and her pull-no-punches lyrics of Don’t Hold a Grudge drive the message home and make people laugh.” The Royal Gazette, October 15, 2003, by Nancy Acton.
