In 2011, AOC performed their original music with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra with orchestrations by Grammy-nominated composer Don Hart. Act of Congress was voted one of the "must see acts" of Alabama, and was featured in the prestigious 2011 Year of Alabama Music. Their genre is Pop/Americana/Acoustic Rock.
