Air Guitar

Despite Kim’s claims to the contrary, just about EVERYONE has played air guitar. How can you not hear a rocking guitar riff and NOT want to play along? Well, as happens, this has been taken to the next level and there is some legit skill and craftsmanship with Competitive Air Guitar!

Since 1996 the Air Guitar World Championships have been held in Oulu, Finland. American Kriston Rucker visited the comp in the early 2000’s and was shocked to see the US was not represented. So he took things into his own hands and started the U.S. Air Guitar Championships!

These events are always action packed, and this year’s US Air Guitar Championship was no different. When the smoke cleared it was The Marquis who was crowned the best air guitarist in the land! Congrats The Marquis! This year’s Air Guitar World Championship is set to take place on August 23rd and RoShamBo wishes The Marquis the best of luck!

The World’s and the U.S. Championships both sound like awesome events with incredible showmanship, fancy dress and, yup, rocking out! Which we love. And, if you want a real treat, check out the documentary Air Guitar Nation and see for yourself how the US took the world stage by storm the first time they went to Oulu.
