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.

Promotions in the Ranks..

The season isn't even over, and we got promotions in the ranks. Tony Tapatio, the 2011 Portland defending champion, took the 2012 Portland Regional, and jumps from Major to Lt. Colonel. Mean Melin, our MidWest (KC) Chapter Commander, took KC again. Tommy Fretless, our Mid-Atlantic (VA) Chapter Commander, took DC again, and is now a Lt. Colonel. Flying Finn is now a Major, taking Minneapolis this year. With San Diego, LA, and SF, still yet to be determined, the AirForce is strong.
And well represented, in Denver. Claw will even be there, but not competing. Claw's role is one of motivation and support nowadays. But also a force to be reckoned with, if y'all choose to attempt to party alongside. Try and keep up. There is no respect for lightweights.
