May 9th was a hot and steamy night in Bytowne… but the underground awesomeness of House of Targ kept our performers cool and ready to rock the crowd. We had 12 performers – all new to the Air Guitar thang. They strummed, chugged and twanged their invisible axes like a possessed dervish and in the end a champion was crowned.
Jason ‘THRUST’ McNeely received the highest scores of the competition, punctuated by two 6.0’s in the compulsory round! THRUST will be travelling to Toronto for July 25th where he will take on other regional champs and some Dark Horse competitors for the chance to be called the 2015 Air Guitar Champion. We will fly our winner to Finland for the 20th Air Guitar World Championships on Aug. 26-30th.
Our next competition is Montreal on June 6th. So don’t be shy and register for that one, become the Montreal Champ and embark on your journey to out-thrust THRUST in Toronto in july.
We raised $400 for Right To Play from Ottawa’s event and we’re looking forward to raising even more coin for our cause as the season progresses.
