NASHVILLE, TN, September 12, 2014 –  The Friends of Jeff Syracuse for Metro Council 15th District will host a campaign kick-off celebration on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. at the historic Grand Ole Opry House Studio A. The celebration will include food, drink, and live music by soul/blues group Markey Blue. The event is open to the public and donations are appreciated, but not required.

“I’m thrilled to start this campaign in the Grand Ole Opry House at Studio A, home to such Nashville traditions as HeeHaw, Crook and Chase, CMT Crossroads, and CMT Invitation Only,” says Syracuse. “It’s the perfect place to begin a campaign that will be about all the things that make Donelson such a treasure of Nashville culture. I invite all my neighbors in Donelson and beyond to join me in officially launching my campaign to represent the 15th District on Metro

In addition to the significance of the location, the evening will be filled with the cool sounds of Markey Blue (, a staple of the Nashville blues and R&B scene, and a tribute to Syracuse’s dedication to the preservation and continuation of the genre.

A Licensing Operations Manager at Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) and a fifteen-year veteran of the Nashville music industry, Syracuse began serving the Donelson community over ten years ago, when he led the creation of his neighborhood watch and grew it into a neighborhood association. His community service and leadership has continued to evolve, leading him to the helm of the Donelson Gateway Project, Friends of Two Rivers Mansion, and the DonelsonHermitage
Chamber. Syracuse’s community leadership has most recently resulted in him being named one of Nashville Business Journal’s “Forty Under 40” honorees for 2014 and YP Nashville and Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce’s Nashville Emerging Leader Award for Arts, Entertainment, and Music Business.

Syracuse seeks to represent the Donelson area, home to the Grand Ole Opry, Gaylord Opryland Hotel & Convention Center, Music Valley, Pennington Bend, Two Rivers Mansion, and McGavock High School, as well as small businesses and national corporate headquarters along Lebanon Pike and Elm Hill Pike. The area is responsible for nearly half of Metro Nashville’s hotel tax income and is home to an actively engaged community of residents in highly desirable
