Get ready for some good old-fashioned Southern style comfort.

Alabama band Act of Congress are making their way to the UAE where they will perform for audiences in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the northern Emirates from September 28 to October 4.

The group, which specialises in playing acoustic instruments across several genres of music, is based in Birmingham and is best-known for their organic sound that combines hook-laden melodies and acoustic instrumentation.

Rapidly gaining followers in their home state, Act of Congress has performed for the likes of XM radio, Disney and Billboard, and was voted one of the “must see acts” of Alabama.

Having toured in Saudi Arabia this year, the band will make their debut here as part of a cultural outreach programme of the US Mission to the UAE.
