Greetings from snowy downtown New York City to all of our friends and club family, and all who have joined us since last year's NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES. We are overjoyed to announce the date and theme for our twentieth annual NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES - it is an anniversary that so many of you have helped make possible by your enthusiasm and great support. We are delighted to be returning for our third year to the THE HIGHLINE BALLROOM, truly a most Enchanted venue for this marathon show. NOTS 20: SISTERS OF THE MOON will be held on Friday, May 14, and tickets will go on sale later this month.
This year's moonlit, milestone edition was inspired by one of Stevie's most enduring and iconic songs, SISTERS OF THE MOON. Though Stevie has not performed this song much of late, it has remained a showpiece and staple of some of NOTS most thrilling performers, from NICOLE NICKS during the JACKIE 60 days right through to POISON EVE and troupe last year. This year's bill will include Legends of Stevie Realness from all eras of the show, and honors them all, who come from all over the country and go through so much to join us, our Sisters of the Moon.
We will now begin assembling the bill for this moonlit milestone edition, with first priority given to Legends of Stevie Realness from the entire history of The Night - those NOTS Legends who are most beloved by our audience, have performed at many editions, or have made NOTS herstory in some way. Of necessity there will be less debuts this year, but we are still passionate about including at least a handful of new performers. If you would like to receive instructions on how to apply, please drop us an email at email@example.com. We will be reviewing submissions through March 1, and will be notifying all new performer applicants during the first week of March.
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 early so you can begin to make plans, and will be back in touch when the box office opens.
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 twenty 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 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, sisters AND brothers of the moon, on May 14.
And The Love Remains -
