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.

High-Level Promotion, and deservedly so..

It is with the utmost honor that the SF AirForce can bestow, I hereby appoint the rank of General, to the legend himself, the producer of Air Guitar Nation, countless competitions on all levels, with championships a hair out of reach, but that doesn't matter in the big scheme of things, and the current host of the US Air Guitar tour, Bjorn Turoque.

He will share to the top level with his peer, former World Champion, General Hot Lixx. Of course, you know what that means. Hot Lixx is a General because he won a World Championship; so by being a judge on the tour, which, correct me if I'm wrong, no other World Champion from the US has done, may have earned him a second star. I'll have to contemplate this on the tree of woe. Can I get a witness?!

Congratulations, General Bjorn.
