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.

Reality Air Check..

Got new tats earlier today. On one arm, Chinese characters for dragon, tiger & crane, representing 3 of the 5 Shaolin animals. Martial Arts. A discipline one practices 24/7. On the other arm, Chinese characters for honor and respect, representing what we do at work, at home, and all other endeavors, including air guitar. After CSR's enlightening performance tonight, and watching "Iron Eagle" upon returning home, it reaffirms my dedication and devotion to our underground art.

It is for those reasons that are the basis for the foundation of the SF AirForce. I just wanted to say thank you for being a part of something that represents us as a whole. Something to be proud of. And as far as I know, we, the SF AirForce, are the first of its kind. A battalion. A squadron. A force to be reckoned with. Unequaled in any other US market. Or country, for that matter.

We are unique in what we do, no matter how it is perceived by others. Above all else, honor and respect.

TC quotes:

Airness is next to godliness.

The air guitar is mightier than the sword.

Air guitar is not a birthrite; it is defined by one's fingers.

It is not whether you win or lose, but HOW you air guitar.

Veni, vidi, flying V - I came, I saw, I wailed.

To air is human; to wail is devine.
