US Air Guitar was a blast! Thanks to City of Aurora, IL, Government and Two Brothers Roundhouse for helping us to bring this phenomenal event to Aurora. It was an amazing night in Aurora history. Five incredible air guitar players performed for an energized crowd in the tavern at the historic landmark along Broadway. A framed art print donated by If These Walls Could Talk was auctioned off raising $120 for SciTech Hands On Museum.
Emcee Matt Drufke introduced the evening of air guitar.
