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.

Cafe Du Renegade...

Thanks to Lt. Colonel Cold Steel Renegade for appearing and representing the under-appreciated art of air guitar, once again, outside the parameters of competition, and keeping the faith alive. Thanks are also in order to Shred Theodore Logan, Esq., for making his presence known, in a show of support and solidarity. Hangin with Logan tonight reinforced Claw's recognition of his passion and dedication for the art, and the AirForce is stronger with his inclusion.

The video is dark, yes, and you can blame the house for that, since they didn't bother to turn on the additional lights that highlight the normal acts the rock the stage. No respect, I tell ya. The music was a cool eclectic mix - pop, rap, rock. Claw almost ran up during the final Eagles solo from Dirty Laundry.

The initial post went out locally, but this is going out to all, simply as a reminder that we are worldwide, and if anyone has tape to offer, to send out to the masses, feel free to pass it along for inclusion on our site.

AirForce is in the house. The alcohol-burning funny cars of air guitar.
