A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Turmoil had engulfed the galactic republic. The taxation of trade routes to outlying star systems is in dispute. Hoping to resolve the matter with an array crappy music, cover bands everywhere stopped all rocking on the small planet of Naboo. While the Congress of the Republic endlessly debates this alarming chain of events. the Supreme Chancellor has secretly dispatched four Jedi Musicians in a band called "Bedtime Stories" who are the guardians of party rock and good times rolling to settle the conflict.

Meanwhile, in 1958, Madonna and Tony Ciccone welcome their first daughter, Madonna, nicknamed Nonni to avoid confusion with Mom. Madonna, attending the University of Michigan on a dance scholarship, drops out after two years and moves to New York City, where she lives in a series of ramshackle apartments while studying and dancing with the Alvin Ailey and Pearl Lang companies. So then she becomes this mega-selling superstar and everything rules.

Little did Madonna know she had a vocalist doppelganger named Marissa Pippone, who spent 2001-2006 importing xylophones in Gainesville, FL before she went full time as a Madonna impersonator. When Marissa moved to Richmond, VA she teamed up with the legendary synthesizer king and guitarist extraordinaire, Chris Ratterre, who was sick of his career in donating jigsaw puzzles for no pay, so he decided to pursue Bedtime Stories fulltime. Along with vocalist/bassist Mike Hedrick(who had previously spent a good deal of time marketing Elvis Presley in the UK) and his warrior friend Marcus Washington (who once stopped the nothing from destroying all of fantastia)... Bedtime Stories was born.
