Tap The Masses and Turner Hall are proud to be bringing The 2011 US Air Guitar Championships to Milwaukee on Wednesday June 8! On this very special evening, we are looking to find the best local Air Guitarists to represent Milwaukee in the National Championships. One winner from this competition, and one from each of the 20 other cities where USAG is holding Regional Competitions, will be win a trip to Chicago on July 23 to compete in the Air Guitar National Finals for the crown of US Air Guitar Champion. The Winner of the National Finals will become The 2011 US Champion, and will win a trip to the Air Guitar World Championships in Finland this August, where he or she will represent the stars and stripes against national champions from 20 other countries all around the world!
Everyone in Milwaukee is encouraged to either sign up and compete, or buy a ticket to come see for yourself what kind of Air Guitar talent Milwaukee has to offer (sign up to compete at www.USAirGuitar.com, and purchase tickets at the top of this page to witness this event).
Each US Regional will consists of two rounds. In Round 1, each competitor performs to a song of their own choosing. Competitors with highest scores from Round 1 advance to Round 2, where they must then perform to a surprise compulsory song. In each round, contestants perform to 60 seconds of a song, and are judged on a combination of Technical Merit, Stage Presence, and “Airness." All guitars must be invisible. In each city, the jury is a panel of independent judges that are hand picked by US Air Guitar. The results of the jury cannot be protested.
