NIGHT REPORTS

Lyrics, Melody and Story by Derrick C. Brown
Music by Beau Jennings

A musical project that transcends conventional band dynamics. Inspired by dark themes and fueled by Derrick's haunting dreams after a Dodgers game, Beau and Derrick crafted an album centered around a haunted baseball player. This concept album emerged before the completion of the accompanying musical, which delves into the intertwined tales of heartbreak and friendship between Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio. Set against the backdrop of Marilyn's tragic demise in 1962, the narrative explores Joe's descent into a relentless quest for revenge following her murder at the hands of forces connected to her secret lover, JFK.

But as John begins to fall in love, he realizes a supernatural phenomenon taking hold inside him that allows him to call down lightning from the heavens. Loosely based on the True Story of the world record holder for being struck by lightning, Roy Sullivan
