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.

Open Season on Poseurs..

It's May. Oh yes it is. 2 weeks until the first regional competition, in Chicago, which also happens to be the location of the US Nationals. Could that be an indication for future competitions, that being the first regional occurs where the US Nationals end up? Hmmm.

This is a first in a while for us elite here in SF. This year, we are NOT the last one on the schedule. Claw is not even going to think about the fact that your calendars haven't been marked for June 24 and June 25 at the Independent. The return to our old stomping grounds. It's Friday and Saturday. And for most of you, Claw shouldn't have to tell you what a relief it is, not to have to climb stairs like we did at The Fillmore. 3 steps to the stage is enough for The Claw, considering...

SIX WEEKS. And that's for SF. Others such as Ricky Stinkfingers, repping our Northeast Chapter (NY), Lost Heartbreaker, repping our Twin Cities Chapter (Minneapolis), and Brock McRock and Whalin BigAir, our affiliates in Texas and Portland, not to mention Wild Thing, our UK affiliate across the pond, may be working with less time on their agenda.

Get your threads together, your routine down, and your chops secured. Each year, we endeavor to surpass our previous efforts, and this year is no different. Bring your A-Game, especially if you're in SF, cuz The Claw is going all-out. You want the truth? You can't handle the truth.

It's time. It's the season. And it's open season on everyone. Best of luck to all the jedi masters, the elite special forces of air guitar.

Warning to all who oppose us: the SF AirForce is in command. There is no competition. There is no chance. Resistance is futile. You will fall to your knees before us, beg for mercy, pray for redemption, and hope to leave with your pride and integrity intact. If you're lucky, you'll earn a place alongside the rest of us, representing the most elite air guitarists in the world today. The SF AirForce. Compete if you can, survive if we let you.
