Opelika Observer

Act of Congress will perform July 19 from 7:30 to 10 p.m. at Pebble Hill as part of Sundilla Acoustic Concert Series.
The group has completed five tours as U.S. cultural ambassadors, led by the U.S. State Department. They have played in Thailand, Oman, Palau, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Philippines, Timor Leste, Bali, Jordan and an Independence Day performance for the Liberian president.
According to critics, Act of Congress’s sound is “grounded, approachable and technically masterful.”
In two short years, the band was recognized by the likes of Paste Online, SXSW, Disney, Woodsongs, NACA, APCA (voted a finalist in the APCA 2010 Best Band competition) and Billboard. They have also worked with Live Nation, opening VIP areas for artists such as John Mayer, Toby Keith, Alan Jackson and Brooks and Dunn.
Admission is $25 at the door and a limited number of advance tickets are available for $20 that can be found at Spicer’s Music, World Cup Coffee and online at
