Peggy Frank is a woman of many talents, many friends, and many accomplishments. Maybe that’s why she’s known by so many names. She’s a devoted friend, mother, soulmate, community developer, massage therapist, lyricist, songwriter for the Peter Moon Band and co-creator of FIX (Nashville Tennessee’s Rehab Rock Opera). She has touched thousands of lives with her creative output and unflagging commitment to live life joyfully.
All who know her were shocked when she was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia a week before the premier of FIX at Vanderbilt University’s Ingram Theater. From her hospital bed at Sarah Cannon Cancer Center she continued to guide and promote the show with typical Peggy Mary style. On October 1, she watched online as nearly 400 attendees gave the show a standing ovation. Now she’s focused on the most ambitious project of her life – overcoming blood cancer. Her spirit is strong, her prognosis excellent , and her doctors are the best in the world.
Peggy doesn’t have health insurance, so her friends and family have joined forces to create a benefit concert “FOR PEGGY’S SAKE” to be held in Nashville TN, at LIMELIGHT (201 Woodland Street Nashville, TN) on Wednesday Dec 7. The show will start at 6:30 pm, featuring some of Nashville’s hottest bands and recording artists:

Stacie Collins Band
Harmonica blowin’ hell-cat STACIE COLLINS is a blazing a trail travelled by few women. Sporting a hard-core honky-tonk wail while backed by a slam-bang rock 'n' roll band, she weds Stones fried rock-n-roll, gut bucket blues and vintage honky-tonk. Produced by rock legend Dan Baird (The Georgia Satellites / Homemade Sin), her 2007 release, THE LUCKY SPOT became a fan favorite and received airplay world wide. Based in Nashville, TN, she tours the US, Scandinavia and Europe regularly and has even spawned a Japanese “Stacie Collins” tribute band.

"The Peter Moon Band is kinda like Train, Tom Petty,Sublime and James Brown road trippin' with the Dalai Lama - Otis Redding is driving the bus!" (Dave Bartley, WKXD FM) The PMB is a great orignal band as well as a party cover band, playing 150 shows a year. Peter has written 4 albums and a rock opera with Peggy Frank over the last several years, selling over 10,000 units without a label deal. He teases Peggy that she is cowriting songs about herself. Drummer John Bartolotta and Bassman Doug Kennedy add the bump and grind to create the PMB's signature sound.
