The US is home to the world's most dominant air guitarists. And as such, the AirForce is home to the US' elite air guitarists. The AirForce was born out of the SF/Bay Area, in 2010, after an immortal showing at the legendary Fillmore West, and comprised of the Bay Area's most dominant airists, the Original 12, formed by SF master air guitarist, Tiger Claw.

The family first started out with a world champion (Hot Lixx Hulahan), a legend (Bjorn Turoque), and several veterans of the trade, of which four from SF went on to win multiple regional championships over the years since the US Air Guitar Competition came to SF in 2006. In 2010, US Air Guitar issued an award - the Profile of Excellence in the Field of Magnificence, to two individuals, both from SF.

2011 saw the expansion of the AirForce as a show of appreciation, a way to honor, and an effort to bring those who would express the same appreciation, honor, love, passion and dedication to the art the AirForce holds so dearly, together as one.

The AirForce is proud to be represented in other regions, in addition to SF's Golden Gate Chapter, throughout the US: Capitol (DC), Cascadia (Seattle), Chi-Town (Chicago), Mid-Atlantic (Charlottesville), MidWest (Kansas City), NorthEast (NY), Pacific Coast (Los Angeles), PacNorWest (Portland), SoCal (San Diego), SouthBay (San Jose, closed), Southern (Houston), Twin Cities (Minneapolis), the UK, and Russia.

We are the jedi masters of air guitar. AirForce Command, is strong, with the force.

What You've Missed So Far..

...but won't in the future.

Shred Nugent rocked in his rock opera, Abigail, two months ago. Not only did he write the music score, he played guitar during the live performance. a true, real, authentic rock opera, in every sense. An old-school b/w film, as a variation on the traditional Salem witch trials, showing on the screen, behind a live band, playing the music score, with Shred on guitar, and actors and actresses performing the opera in front of them. 3-D on a whole new level.

Cold Steel Renegade performed on stage at the recent Japantown Street Festival last month. Friends, family, as well as his "Steel Reserve" unit, as I like to call it. You know, like the national reserve, and a direct reference to Claw's fave beer, Steel Reserve. All I need is their names to add them as Lieutenants to the SF AirForce. Help me out Renegade. He also recently hosted/MC'd a fundraiser for the SF Bicycle Coalition at Cafe Du Nord, a week ago.

If anyone else has upcoming dates, gigs, appearances, exhibitions, performances, etc, lemme know. we'll get the word out.
