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.

One More Addition to the blog...

...for they exhibit that which is what the AirForce stands for, and Claw is honored, in spite of his recent indiscretion. It should also be noted, one of the members is our own PacNorWest Chapter Commander, Whalin BigAir. Another member, who won Portland this year, and forced BigAir to make the trip to Chicago for the Dark Horse, but won't be alone, is another member, Tony Tapatio. AIRPOCALYPSE.

Good luck to SF's Shred Nugent and Cold Steel Renegade, Kansas City's Mean Melin, Minneapolis' Airisol, and San Diego's Lt-Colonel Facemelter, along with LA's possible winners, Six-String General and Shred Boy R.D., and Dark Horse hopefuls, Brock McRock, Whalin BigAir, Lost Heartbreaker, and any other family members who make the trek to the Windy City. All of you deserve it, and are winners, no matter what.

Claw is proud of you all. Here's to hoping one of the family makes it to Finland. Live the dream, and keep it alive. But most importantly, keep in touch.
