Kashimana Ahua,
The Applause Posse

A genuine compliment can boost energy, mood, and self-esteem for several days. What could a shower of compliments do? Enter The Applause Posse, a performing duo using voice, guitar, and other portable instruments for the sole purpose of showering people with musical compliments on Nicollet Mall at Northern Spark.

It also turns out that giving compliments is as beneficial as receiving them, so the audience will be encouraged to join in the composed musical shower of compliments, essentially becoming the posse of Applause Posse.
