Quizz Kid is a brand new Tull tribute band from the Czech Republic. It is a spinoff band from Bratranci Veverkove, who are still active, so you've got two Czech Republic tribute bands both originally founded by Jan Jezek, a/k/a Jeffrey Vervekove, nicknamed after one of several Vervekove cousins who were farmers in Czechoslavakia in the 18th Century, I think, and who apparently invented some innovative agricultural equipment, just like the "real" Jethro Tull. I may be off a little in my description, but it's something like that. I'm sure JTB member 'jeffreyverekove' will fill us in with additional details and corrections here, as well as supply links to QK's website and FB page!
Like the original Bratranci Veverkove band, the Quizz Kids kick considerable ass, and they've got spot-on vocals:
They can also go soft:
The weird thing about all this is that apparently Jan's Quizz Kid bandmates are asking him to use Bratranci Veverkove as the new band's name, instead of Quizz Kid, but I don't see how that can work because the original Bratranci Veverkove are clearly a separate band and are still very active. Talk about confusing, Jan! Hopefully, litigation can be avoided.

Thanks Jeff for the humorous entree. And sorry for my late reply. Most of what were said before is true, but not in the right order
So i will try to put some light in this "curious case". For that reason "not to be confusing" i will use full names of the bands.
From the 2004 till 2013 were one band called Bratranci Veverkove (JETHRO TULL tribute band). In the year 2013 we had some "personel crisis" inside the band, which led to the band breakup. So the former band Bratranci Veverkove (JETHRO TULL tribute band) no longer exists. But two old/new bands were born.
The rest of the former band ask us if they can use part of the former band name and so they now call them self as Bratranci Veverkove plays Jethro Tull.
We are the bigger part of the last lineup (VOC, FL, BG, DR) and we named the new band as a QUIZZ KID (Jethro Tull tribute).
Biggles: Sooo jealous! enjoy.

teddy: Seems like everyone trying to figure out " Eat Hermione for lunch" just don't get it. A Popular vegetarian line of food is advertised by a woman named Hermione. You can see the advertisement on line. Thus it is not oral sex with a office girl. Munch.

lclark354: Hello everyone. I recently finished a room addition, and can finally set up surround sound. I've purchased all the Tull sets, except, of course,TAAB. Is there a site where one can purchase & download the 5.1 files? Or, any word on a re-issue?

madjack1959: Hello to everyone from Lexington, Kentucky. Part of what led me here, was mention of Gentle Giant. I've listened to Tull for ages, and then was introduced to GG via Octopus I saw in the record store, and that was my start. I've never seen either "live" :

yellowcab643: I made my way to Hollywood and thought it was very refreshing. The Kaiser Permanente Optometrist there cured my High Blood Pressure. Do I like an unsung westerner - I drove an England truck and had a Texas CDL Styx & Van Halen might have music about me
