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.

New member/chapter, plus update notes

The AirForce welcomes it's newest member, a veteran himself, Thunderstrook, representing the newest chapter, the Capitol Chapter (Washington DC). He was this year's Nashville Regional Champion, and even made the trek to Finland, to represent Air Amairica. Site update news: all of us are listed in the ranks, but not everyone is represented with videos, below the ranks, until now. Today, Claw spent pretty much all day, and into the night, adding each of you to the video section. Most of the time was spent waiting for Google (youtube/blogger) to upload, refresh, etc. Check out the site to see for yourself. If you want anything added, changed or removed, drop Claw a line. Also, membership has been mostly by invitation. But looking at the numbers (37 members in 14 chapters), it appears the AirForce has become a great way to showcase the art of air guitar, through the many videos of all of its members. Most of the regions are represented, with multiple members in each region. Of course, there's always room for one more region, if Claw can creatively come up with a name for it. He's been lucky so far. (You gotta love Capitol for DC.) So at this time, Claw would like to extend an open invitation to anyone who would like to be a part of it, and have your name and video performances highlighted on the site.
