I second this recommendation - one of the very best FZ cover bands I've heard.

Another great band from Germany - maybe the Best Zappa Cover Band from there. They do some astonishing live versions from the 'Broadway The Hardway-Tour'. And they're all very good musicians indeed, and they must have been practising quite some time, that's why they had the nerve to tape these concerts from 7/8nov1997. My favorites are The Idiot Bastard Son, Cruisin' For Burgers and of course Zomby Woof that was played in the Dutch Radio4 Show: The Others Of Invention on 21dec1998.

It has been some time already, but I remember seeing the tinseltown rebellion band performing somewhere in Germany very vividly. I can't recall the location (Köln??) - but it was a hell of a concert (hello Jos - how are you? - and I remember talking to Horst as well) At that time, they already had a demo-tape out but that was nothing compared to the concert. And now there's the cd, recorded live november 7 & 8 at the Jakobshof in Aachen, Germany. Up-tempo Zappa, just the way I like it. Excellent stuff.
