Artists Features – Mark-Allen-Piccolo, Jayme Arredondo, Daniel Riera and Vic Wong of The Congress

Hailing from the salty depths of Oakland, California, representative Allen-Piccolo provides that popcorn bass. His message is one of solidarity: “don’t give me no trash”. Whether Democrat, Republican, Party of Tea, or Party of Green, he’ll have Capitol Hill, the judiciary branch, and the liberal mass media do the filibuster all night long.

Yes we can.
