CASCADE (KWWL) -

You could feel the buzz at Cascade High School today. It's easy to know why -- a big-time band descended on the small eastern Iowa town.

It was part of the grand prize package won by Cascade High School in State Farm's Celebrate My Drive contest.

While every student got to see the concert, some students got to meet the band in person beforehand.

"It's such a blur," said Courtney Sadler of meeting the band. "It's such an amazing experience. I don't know what to say."

Bailey Hoffman was there too. 

"It's not every day that you have a famous band at your school -- especially one this small," Hoffman said.

Nolan Weber also got to meet the band -- and interview them, too.

"We just asked them simple questions: What's your favorite accomplishments so far? How did they get to this point?" Weber said.

And the band didn't disappoint.

The Band Perry had the entire crowd on their feet, many screaming and waving their arms around within seconds of hitting the first notes of their first song.

And for a day, a high school auditorium in a small Iowa town took on the feel of a big-time arena.
