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 will be the Nordic themed NOTS 32: NORTHERN STAR on May 4 2024 at home venue Irving Plaza.
Since 2019 the Jackie Factory also produces a second annual edition NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES NEW ORLEANS in the French Quarter or CBD. The 2023 NOTS NOLA took flight on October 7 at The Howlin’ Wolf.
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, JAKE SHEARS, BOY GEORGE, THE CRYSTAL ARK, BASIL TWIST, CYNDI LAUPER, JESSE MALIN, VANGELINE THEATER, JOEY ARIAS, TAYLOR MAC, LEA DELARIA and many more.
