NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES – the largest and most beloved STEVIE NICKS fan event in the world – will take flight for its thirtieth annual edition at the magnificent SONY HALL on October 16, 2020. (Please note event has been rescheduled from its usual May date due to the coronavirus emergency.) NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES 30: BOOK OF STEVIE is produced by show founders CHI CHI VALENTI and JOHNNY DYNELL and their creative krewe at THE JACKIE FACTORY. 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.
The milestone edition will feature beloved performers from all eras of the show, and a few very special debuts. Already confirmed to appear are AMBER MARTIN, POISON EVE, IT WAS ROMANCE, MARYANNE PICCOLO, THE RACHEL KLEIN THEATRE, DEANNA LARSON (WYOMING), HEATHER LITTEER, BRIDGET BARKAN and CATHY CERVENKA (THE HO-HOs) with many more to be added. Longtime NOTS DJs SAMMY JO (Club Cumming) and TRAVIS ISLAND aka VJ TRE (D.C.) will spin the all-Stevie/Fleetwood dancefloor and the rare video nuggets. “Enchantresses of Ceremonies” CHI CHI VALENTI, PAUL ALEXANDER and EDITRIX ABBY will keep the white winged talent flowing.
The producers also continue their tradition of including new Stevie Nicks interpretations in every edition of the show. This year the first debut will come from Ireland’s VIKKI MARTIN, lead singer of Europe’s only Nicks tribute STANDBACK THE STEVIE NICKS EXPERIENCE (DUBLIN). The search for the remaining three debuts has ended and all the new performers will be announced shortly.
Our historic Broadway venue SONY HALL was a NYC nightlife staple in the 1940s as BILLY ROSE’S DIAMOND HORSESHOE, home to stars like BETTY GRABLE, GENE KELLY and its famous leggy chorus line. The magnificent room and stage should prove an ideal replacement for beloved NOTS home venue for the last six years (Irving Plaza), which is closed for renovation.
As epic a tribute to Nicks’ musical gifts and stage mastery as NOTS is, it equally showcases “STEVIE STYLE” – the iconic Stevie looks from handkerchief hems to fringed shawls and adorned top hats. Though dressing up isn’t mandatory, it is practiced by most attending. As always, NOTS 30 will climax with the iconic “Battle of A Thousand Stevies” finale and tambourines will be tossed to the Enchanted audience through the night.
