DOORS OPEN 9 PM - 4 AM
$25 ADMISSION, 18 AND OVER
Greetings from downtown New York City to our beloved Gypsies, and all who have joined this us since last year's NOTS. We hope you are warm and enjoying this brand new year, with all its hope and challenges. We are overjoyed to announce the date and theme for the 2009 NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES 19. After so much positive feedback about last year's new venue - THE HIGHLINE BALLROOM - we are happy to be returning there this year. NOTS 19: SONGS OF RHIANNON will be held on Friday, May 1, and tickets will go on sale on February 1.
This year's theme - and the centerpiece of the show - are the ten "SONGS OF RHIANNON" penned by STEVIE NICKS in her BUCKINGHAM NICKS days. Some are well loved and well known, like RHIANNON, PLANETS OF THE UNIVERSE, ANGEL and SORCERER, others are only demos. In stage decor, visuals and costuming, we'll pay homage to the Celtic white witch RHIANNON - fitting for a date that is both MAY DAY and BELTANE.
Our next announcement will have lots more details, including first confirmed performers, more about the theme, and box office information. We wanted to get the date out this weekend so you can begin to make plans, and will be back in touch when the box office opens.
A NOTE TO PERFORMERS
All performers who have played at NOTS in the past, let us know your intentions for this year as soon as possible, or by March 1 the latest. Look out for a separate email in the next week or so with more information about this year's theme and the Rhiannon Songs in particular. We do NOT need song requests this early, but you are welcome to send them along (especially if they are one of the ten Rhiannon Songs).
If you are a new performer who would like to apply to perform at NOTS 19, please email us at events @ jackiefactory.com by March 1, and we will send you full instructions on how to apply.
BOX OFFICE AND TICKETS
Advance tickets $20 February 1-15 (a thank-you to our longtime attendees)
$25 after February 15 and at the door if available.
Box Office opens February 1 on the HIGHLINE BALLROOM site
Night of a Thousand Stevies is probably the best-known STEVIE NICKS fan event in the world, a riot of shawls, lace, baby's breath, twirling, tambourines and great performance. This event began at JACKIE 60 nineteen years ago with four performers, and has grown into a true spectacle, featuring countless interpretations over a marathon night. As always, this Enchanted evening will climax in a twirl of shawls and tambourines with the Battle of a Thousand Stevies near morning.
As we once again prepare for a truly magical night, we are humbled by the very special joy and tremendous support that you bring to NOTS every year. Special greetings to all of our friends from the Stevie Nicks websites and other online outposts for the Gypsies That Remain. Forward and post freely, and we look forward to twirling with all of you, NOTS Legends and newbies alike, on May 1.
And The Love Remains -
