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 next NYC edition is NOTS 31: ANGEL on May 6 2023, on sale January 12.
The 30th annual edition NOTS 30: BOOK OF STEVIE was cancelled for 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic and finally took flight May 6 2022 at SONY HALL. Since 2019 the Jackie Factory also produces a second annual edition NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES NEW ORLEANS at the French Quarter venue ONE EYED JACKS. The next NOTS NOLA will be in October 2023.
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, JESSE MALIN, VANGELINE THEATER, JOEY ARIAS, TAYLOR MAC, LEA DELARIA and many more.
