“In a word, dazzling … the most talked-about production of this year’s Humana Festival.”

Prepare to have your face melted by Shreddy Eddy, Golden Thunder and the reigning champ, D Vicious, at the National Air Guitar competition!  Nina, a real guitar player, enters the competition thinking it will be a cinch to take the championship.  She soon discovers she has a lot to learn.  A tribute to good friends, killer rock classics, and the joy of letting go.
