HANOVER COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) - Rock band REO Speedwagon visited Hanover High School Friday to meet the students and staff who created a "lib dub" video featuring the band's song “Roll with the Changes.” [SCROLL DOWN FOR THE VIDEO]

Last summer teachers Stacie Marshall and Trip Wells produced the video to teach their Mass Communications students about camera movements. The video was also used to build some excitement for the upcoming school year.

This week members of REO Speedwagon saw the video and posted it on the band's website.

“Oh my God…I just watched lip dub of Roll With The Changes from Hanover, Virginia and I literally have tears in my eyes at the finale.  This is the coolest thing ever!  Thanks to all of the 1000 people who make it happen.  You guys are awesome,” posted REO Speedwagon singer Kevin Cronin on the band's Facebook page.

Cronin and the band arriveed at Hanover High Friday afternoon.

In addition to meeting the people behind the video, the band answered questions from students and performed their hit song.

REO Speedwagon is on tour with Styx and Ted Nugent. The band performs tonight in Bristow, Virginia and Saturday in Virginia Beach.
