NEWS FROM THE JACKIE FACTORY
Greetings from Jackie Factory headquarters in New Orleans - such a kick to be sending our first newsletter of the "New Twenties". Saturday night our new season/decade begins with the second NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES NEW ORLEANS at ONE EYED JACKS in the French Quarter. We are expecting Factory folks in from all over twirling feverishly with our adored local crowd. It feels right to be starting our year here, as Carnival season shimmers just down the road. Next stop is Los Angeles for the EJAF Academy Awards Viewing Party bash on 2/9, then back to New Orleans and finally, our hometown New York City where NOTS 30: BOOK OF STEVIE just went on sale at SONY HALL. We are truly Tricoastal this winter - thanks as always for your encouragement, glamour and support!
SATURDAY JANUARY 25
THE JACKIE FACTORY PRESENTS
THE SECOND ANNUAL 
NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES NEW ORLEANS
ONE EYED JACKS

 
NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES returns for its second New Orleans edition on 1/25 at ONE EYED JACKS in the French Quarter. The evening is produced by THE JACKIE FACTORY, who see it as a return to the more intimate roots of the show at JACKIE 60 in the 1990s. Show founders (and part time NOLA residents) CHI CHI VALENTI and JOHNNY DYNELL, call NO "the most Stevie city in America." No wonder that the first NOTS NOLA last February was a best-dressed, performance-rich epic attended by show fans from all over and a marvelously mixed local crowd (photo above.)

NOTS NEW ORLEANS will feature a wide array of interpretations of the goddess Nicks. Headlined by NYC show veterans/ "Legends of Stevie Realness" AMBER MARTIN (NYC/NOLA) and DIVINE GRACE (Orlando), debut performers will include GOLDEN BRAID (UK), SHANNON MARTIN-PAUL (Ohio), LEFTY LUCY and SCOTT MARTINO (New Orleans), and DEREK SIMS with RAIN JAUDON (Mississippi). Longtime NOTS DJ SAMMY JO will be spinning the all-Stevie/ Fleetwood dancefloor and show founder and "Enchantress of Ceremony" EMPRESS CHI CHI VALENTI will be keeping the white winged talent flowing. The show will climax with the iconic "Battle of A Thousand Stevies" finale and tambourines will be tossed to the Enchanted audience through the night.

SUGGESTED DRESS: Southern Gothic a la Stevie Nicks, Like A White Winged Dove, Beribboned and Bedecked Tambourines, Enchanted Eveningwear, Welsh Witch vs Mayfair Witch (Dark Ages to Darkwave), Nightbird Capes, Decatur Street Chiffonhead, Fringed Shawls, Stevie-adorned Top hats, Fleetwood "The Dance" classic menswear, Vampire Velvets, Best Hair In Rock And Roll or Total Stevie Realness (All Eras)

THE JACKIE FACTORY PRESENTS 
NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES 30:
BOOK OF STEVIE
FRIDAY, MAY 8 AT SONY HALL NYC
ALL TICKETS $40
ONLINE BOX OFFICE
OR AT SONY HALL BOX OFFICE (NO TICKET FEE)

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 May 8. 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, VANGELINE THEATER, BRIDGET BARKAN, MARYANNE PICCOLO, THE RACHEL KLEIN THEATRE, HEATHER LITTEER 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 our first debut will come from Ireland's VIKKI MARTIN (picture below), lead singer of Europe's only Nicks tribute STANDBACK THE STEVIE NICKS EXPERIENCE in Dublin. The search is underway for our final three debut performers or ensembles - write to jackiefactorynyc@gmail.com before 3/1 for the application guidelines.

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.
