Suite 2069 was inspired by a couple’s staycation at a 5-star Las Vegas Resort Casino on the Strip. When the couple went to register and it was discovered that they were locals, they were then offered a free upgrade to a suite on the 20th floor that perfectly overlooked the strip. That suite’s room number was 2069. Which by chance, 69 happens to be the couple’s number. Not for the reason you may think. (Don’t be naughty) but because one’s birthdate is on the 6th of the month and the other is on the 9th. Something special always happens to them when something is tagged with the number 69 or 96. Especially that 3-day staycation in that suite. Keith Marlo's sax, James 'JD' Davis's guitar solo plus Dedae's lush vocal overlay sets the romantic mood. So, this beautiful song serves as a forever reminder of those 3 days.

Bandleader Greg "GR" Radford with over 40 years in the music industry has produced, recorded, performed or written with many artists from Spoken Word to R & B to Smooth Jazz. The New Jersey native has worked with the likes of Amiri Baraka, Latoya Jackson, Jermaine Jackson, The Kay Gees, Gerald Levert, Kanye West, Jon Lucien, Chuck Loeb, John Lee, Marion Meadows, Nelson Rangel, The Fantasy Band, International Recording Artist Curtis Hairston, Skip Martin, Joy Enrique and Philippine singing star Benig just to name a few. Those relationships has helped "GR" to become well respected amongst his music peers. With such a diverse career it was only natural for him to craft something of his own. Whether it's producing, playing bass guitar, keyboards or percussion. Greg's unique and recognizable style can be heard all through Gettin' In The Game Vol.1.
Even as a child Diane (aka Dedae' Patrise) was destined to become an entertainer. Raised in a musical family, she was introduced by her mom to the classics in Voice, Piano, Opera and Jazz influences came from her dad, who could sing Nat King Cole and play a little Erroll Garner on the piano. Graduating from the prestigious Arts High School of Performing Arts in Newark NJ, that produced the likes of Sarah Vaughn, Melba Moore, Wayne Shorter, Tisha Campbell and dancer Savion Glover. She began soaking up Musical Theater and traveled with the national/ international touring companies of the off-Broadway musical 'Mama I Want To Sing'. Since then, Diane’s career has formed long time relationships with artists like Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, The Righteous Brothers and the very first girl group of rock and roll, The Shirelles. She has also served as background for many live and recorded performances for numerous artists. Now, being a Co-Founder of Jaz-Zay Soul Recordings and a member of Fahrenheit 702. The composer, vocalist and musician is over the moon about the company's 'Premier' smooth jazz presentation...Fahrenheit 702 ‘Getting’ In The Game Vol.1’. “For this wonderful music to finally get to the ears and hearts of our family of listeners is truly a blessing and a dream come to true”.

We, the members of Fahrenheit 702 and the Las Vegas music community was deeply sadden by the lost of our dear friend and fellow Fahrenheit 702 member James "JD" Davis, He was a major contributor to this project and a loving friend to us all.
We are so glad that we will get to hear his contribution to this project forever. He played so beautifully and will forever be missed. R.I.H. - G.R.
James is featured on our current single "Suite 2069"
