AIR GUITAR FOR GOOD!
Kingston’s First Ever Official Air Guitar Championships To Be Held on March 28th
For far too long has Kingston been without its own official and internationally sanctioned Air Guitar Championships. On March 28th the wait comes to an end. Air Guitar Canada (AGC) will be crowning a Kingston Air Guitar Champion and sending him/her on to Toronto for the National Finals to take place in late July.
For the past 20 years in Oulu, Finland (the northern capital), Air Guitarists from around the world meet to compete in the AIR GUITAR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS. They create 1-minute performances that defy reality and melt the crowd’s faces. These air guitar heroes are judged using the figure skating scoring system of 4.0 to 6.0 for originality, stage charisma, technical merit, ability to be taken over by the music, artistic impression, and of course, ‘airness’.
Air Guitar is all about promoting world peace. The mantra: ‘When you’re holding an Air Guitar, you can’t be holding a gun’. We also have a charitable mandate; Air Guitar Canada donates the net proceeds of our events to Right To Play Canada – Helping children facing adversity due to war, famine, and poverty worldwide through sport and play programs.
Air Guitarists are invited to register to compete and get their shot at rock stardom and a chance to win a trip to Finland to represent Canada as the 2015 Canadian Air Guitar Champion. What better way to volunt’air’ yourself for a great cause?
