The twenty-fourth annual NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES - the largest and most beloved STEVIE NICKS fan event in the world - returns to NYC on May 9, 2014. The marathon evening - produced by THE JACKIE FACTORY - has moved to its sixth and largest venue - historic IRVING PLAZA in our home neighborhood of Union Square. This year's theme - SPELLBOUND - pays homage to Stevie Magic in all its many guises and songs - a magic that always touches NOTS. The 24th edition is also inspired by Stevie's WELSH WITCH persona, once again in the spotlight after her recent appearances on AMERICAN HORROR STORY:COVEN.
A very special Stevie Spell will be cast over the new NOTS stage and ballroom. The first confirmed performers for this year's edition are "Returning Legends of Stevie Realness" from all eras of the show. They are NOTS icon and YouTube star SHERRY VINE, perennial showstoppers THE HO-HOs (CATHY CERVENKA and JILL PANGALLO), beloved songstress AMBER MARTIN, iconic crowd favorite SWEETIE, gifted Stevie impersonator CHARLENE CORAN (COLORADO), Gothic Songbird LADY ZOMBIE, NOTS drag touchstone THE DIVINE GRACE, dark performance/dance ensemble THE RACHEL KLEIN THEATER, original NOTS DJ POISON EVE with burlesquer DARLINDA JUST DARLINDA, Butoh sensations THE VANGELINE THEATER, living artworks MACHINE DAZZLE and DARRELL THORNE and lavender soul sensation XAVIER (who debuted last year.) "Enchantresses of Ceremony"are show founder CHI CHI VALENTI and longtime co-producers HATTIE HATHAWAY and EDITRIX ABBY, and first confirmed DJs are SAMMY JO and VJ TRE (D.C.) who will again spin original Nicks multimedia and rare video clips for the first hour.

NOTS is one of those great New York City spectacles that spark travel from all around the globe by performers and audience alike. Born in 1991 at the tiny performance venue MOTHER at JACKIE 60, "The Night" and its passionate audience inspired the 2001 feature film GYPSY 83 and even a "Jeopardy" question. 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 Enchanted annual, helmed by founders CHI CHI VALENTI and JOHNNY DYNELL, has featured celebrated performers including DEBBIE HARRY, JUSTIN VIVIAN BOND, BOY GEORGE, THE CRYSTAL ARK, BASIL TWIST, CYNDI LAUPER, VANGELINE THEATER, JOEY ARIAS and many more. It has also raised generations of "Legends of Stevie Realness" including founding performer DEAN JOHNSON, perennial showstoppers THE HO-HOs and BELLADONNA, and countless more.
