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.

Shred Nugent destruction..

From the Shredder/Kippis camp:

I just wanted to let you know of a busy week here at the "KIPPIS" camp.

We went into the studio last week to record, and will put more work into it before we have something ready to release - we're very excited about the songs, and can't wait for you to hear them!

Which brings me to this - we have TWO gigs coming up in this next week:
Sat Apr 9th - 9pm $5 admission
Rooster's Roadhouse - Alameda
1700 Clement Ave (& Grand)
We have an opening act at 9pm, so we will go on @ 10pm...

Now check THIS out:

We are playing in a "Battle Of The Bands" - for a chance to play the Haight Street Fair on June 12th - this is a fundraiser for the Fair, and tickets are $7-10 sliding scale...

Winners are chosen by crowd noise, so we need you up here to "CHEER" - us on! Of course, Kippis being the Finnish word for "cheers" is a good sign I hope!!!

Here's the info:
Thurs, Apr 14th - doors at 8PM, Show at 9PM - $7-10 Sliding Scale
The Blue Macaw
2565 Mission St (b/w 21st & 22nd)


Claw can't make the Roadhouse, but will be at the Macaw
also to present Shredder with his badge of honor
if Awesome, Priestess, or Singar show, Claw will have yours.

And, if any of the SF AirForce show up to the Macaw,
Claw's got your first drink.
