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.

Latest news / updates

Tonight (Thursday, May 19) is Kansas City, and Saturday, May 21, is Austin, TX. SF AirForce's own Brock McRock, repping our Southern Affiliate Chapter, is competing, and defending his regional crown. Brock - KILL'EM ALL.

Newest addition to the SF AirForce, and contributing to our awesome expansion, is Lt. Facemelter. Who? You should know by now. He is a San Diego Regional Champion, BUT...also competed right here in SF, in the Bridge Competition, but placed third after Cold Steel Renegade. Man, that Awesome and Cold Steel are forces to be reckoned with, with multiple SF regional wins. Claw is most certainly proud to have them play a major part of the SF AirForce. Since the Facemelter has competed here, AND...even has his own official US Air Guitar trading card, it is with great honor and pride to welcome him as a fellow jedi master of air guitar, into the SF AirForce special forces. For those who know him personally, drop him a line and welcome him to the fold.

Funny story: Claw made a comment about Facemelter having his own USAG card, but not a TC card. Claw was humbly corrected. Somehow, someway, the Facemelter acquired a TC card back in 2009 when he competed here. Most of you will remember 2009 was a year Claw would like to forget, for obvious reasons, but it certainly wasn't anything that was going to deter him from doing what he does best, no matter how life-threatening.

Lt. Facemelter, welcome to the SF AirForce. We're proud to have represent us from down South. Now, about that name, Lt. Facemelter. We're gonna have to do something about that, now that you're a Major.

so far, the kickstarter program is up just over $900. June 9 is the deadline for $10,000. So we're basically still down around 10%. You got the emails for the link. Do what you can. It's 3 weeks away.
