FITCHBURG -- For years, Notre Dame Prep has brought some of the nation's best basketball players to North Central Massachusetts.

This weekend, the school has a completely different goal: to bring fun in the form of country music to Fitchburg.

The Shana Stack Band will perform a concert to benefit the Notre Dame Prep General Fund Saturday night. The benefit will be an all-ages show that starts at 7:30 at the South St. school, with tickets going for $10.

The band -- whose singer and namesake is originally from Fitchburg -- has won the Independent Country Music Association's Country Band of the Year award and its Fans Choice Award, as well as the New England Music Award for Country Act of the Year. The group focuses on top 40 country songs and original material during its shows.

"They're a great band and they're going to play a lot of songs that people know," Notre Dame Prep basketball coach Ryan Hurd noted. "We're excited to have them here."

Doors open at 6:30 and there will be a cash bar.

Those interested in purchasing tickets prior to the night of the event can pick up tickets, which are available at the school's main office at 151 South St. Additional questions can be directed to Hurd at (603) 365-6270.
