Night of 1000 Stevies
NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES is the largest and longest-running STEVIE NICKS fan event in the world. The much-loved annual is produced by founders CHI CHI VALENTI and JOHNNY DYNELL and their JACKIE FACTORY production company. The 30th annual edition NOTS 30: BOOK OF STEVIE takes flight at SONY HALL on October 16, 2020. (Date was originally May 8 and was pushed forward for the first time in our history due to the coronavirus emergency.) Neither a contest nor a karaoke show, NOTS is the Stevie Nicks celebration ne plus ultra- a riot of shawls, lace, baby’s breath, twirling, tambourines and great performance.
Born in 1991 at the tiny performance venue MOTHER at JACKIE 60, NOTS and its passionate audience inspired the feature film GYPSY 83 and even a “Jeopardy” question. Performers have included DEBBIE HARRY, JUSTIN VIVIAN BOND, BOY GEORGE, THE CRYSTAL ARK, BASIL TWIST, CYNDI LAUPER, VANGELINE THEATER, JOEY ARIAS, LEA DELARIA and many more. Since 2019 the Jackie Factory also produces a second annual edition NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES NEW ORLEANS in late winter at the French Quarter venue ONE EYED JACKS.
