Brothers Johnson tribute band??? (San Diego)

Bro, no one going to clubs remembers the Brothers Johnson, they were decades and decades ago. You really think venues are going to pay for a cover band for a forgotten act of a thousand years ago?

Look at the kind of bands that have cover acts: Foo Fighters, Green Day, Depeche Mode, shit like that. Not some obscure R&B act that if you asked 1000 people, maybe 2 would even have heard of them.

Yeah, they were a slammin' band in their day. But a tribute act is not that band. Even the actual Brothers Johnson (I know, Louis is dead) couldn't get booked at most places these days, because their last hit was 44 years ago and their demographic is aging or dead. MMMMaybe a casino, but even then it'd probably have to be a package tour with ten other acts, only playing their hits. A tribute to them has zero chance of succeeding, and you don't have a band or even any members, really. So time to rethink and quit dicking around with something that is never gonna fly.
