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.

KIPPIS Deja Vu...

The SF AirForce's own, Major Shred Nugent is at it again, same deal, same location, fighting for a spot at the Haight Street Fair (SF), which, after 7 years have passed, is once again playing on Claw's birthday, June 12. But this show is coming up real quick. It's a cool location. Remember the 12 Galaxies? Remodeled, better acoustics. Come on out. Claw will be there. And with the usual "first round on the Claw, if you show". Uh, that includes Shred. Even better, that includes Shred's bandmates.

And for those of you in the SF Airforce not on the up-&-up, especially the other chapters, Mrs. Shred Nugent is from Oulu, Finland. Sound familiar? DAMN STRAIGHT. The very location we all aspire to. The World Championship. Sorry for the tangent, but it's a great segue as a reminder that needs to be made, since we're in the middle of competition, and all of us need to remember why we're here, what we're striving for, and what we need to do to get the job done.

Let's rock, this Friday, May 27. Especially hard for the Claw. He goes in for finishing touches on the back tattoo, at 1pm, 4 blocks from the club, and Shred doesn't go on till 4 hours later. Moot point. Claw is there.
