Proclamation KC

PROCLAMATION

 

TO ESTABLISH SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 2014 AS ‘AIR GUITAR DAY’ IN KANSAS CITY

 

WHEREAS, competitive air guitar began in the United States in 2003, when Cedric Devitt and Kriston Rucker founded US Air Guitar, the official governing body of air guitar in the United States; and

WHEREAS, each year US Air Guitar changes the city where the final competition will be held.  Past locations have included Washington D.C., Chicago, and San Francisco, all of which were sold out; and,

WHEREAS, performers are judged on three criteria: technical merit, stage presence, and “airness”; and

WHEREAS, past judges have included Tom Morello, Brian May, Jason Sudeikis, and the Sklar brothers; and

WHEREAS, the US Air Guitar National Finals will be held at The Midland Theater in Kansas City, Missouri on August 9, 2014, the first time in the event’s 11-year history; and

WHEREAS, the US Air Guitar National Finals is the Super Bowl of Air Guitar, a one-of-a-kind event that combines comedy, rock n’ roll, and larger-than-life characters into one absurd mixture of insanity.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Sylvester James, Mayor of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, on behalf of the citizens of this great city and the City Council, do hereby proclaim Saturday, August 9, 2014, as ‘Air Guitar Day’ in Kansas City, Missouri and encourage everyone to stop what they are doing and air guitar for world peace.
