Rock out to some awesome air guitar

airguitarRemember when you used to rock out in your room with the music blasting in just your underwear, T-shirt and socks?

This act wouldn’t be complete without your signature air guitar.

We’ve all done this, and we probably owe it to that famous scene from “Risky Business” where Tom Cruise’s character goes bananas to Bob  Seger’s “Old Time Rock and Roll.” If you’re a fan of air guitar, then you need to come out to the Hard Rock Cafe this Friday at 9:30 p.m. to see the US Air Guitar Regional Finals.

If you’ve never seen a professional air guitarist, come watch these legends battle it out for cash and prizes. This may sound silly to you, but trust us when we say these guitarists take their job very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that the winner of this rockin’ event will actually fly to New York for the 2010 US Air Guitar Championship and get a chance to represent the our country in the World Air Guitar Competition in Oulu, Finland.

During the event, the cafe will offer free marshmallows, $6 drink specials and much more.

Guest judges include local media like Sweet Al from KOMP 92.3 and Lisa Remillard from KTNV 13 Action News. Stick around to see a special performance by Black Beans N Hippie Liver.

Just make sure to come with your some pants on. You’re not in your room or home alone here, and I’m sure nobody wants to see you in just your undies. But feel free to rock the shades and get your air guitar on!


Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my handsome hubby, adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies. You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.
