Brothers Johnson

The Brothers Johnson – George and Louis - exploded out of the L.A. music scene landing in Billy Preston’s God Squad; and then came to the attention of star-maker, Quincy Jones. “Q” is quoted, “I knew that I had found something extremely special and couldn’t wait to get into the studio and create some hits with these boys on my ‘Mellow Madness’ album.” After featuring in Jones’ LP on A&M, they also signed with the label. 

Along the way, they grew a huge, diverse following for their to-die-for high-energy show - entertainers not to be missed! A Spectacular, Party Band, “BrosJ” burned up stages far and wide - with George fronting the band on lead vocals and lightening-licks guitar, while thunder thumbs Louis was holding down the groove on bass. Over time, George and Louis moved on toward studio, solo, and other projects. Occasionally, they would reunite to much fanfare and fun, showing the band still ‘had it!” Recently George began bringing the band back to the fore, but in 2015 Louis passed, RIP. Still the fans wanted the funk, the silky voice, and yes, they want lightening licks to strike again and again! After a prayer-filled pause, George added a couple of Quincy Jones “A List” bass protégés, and fired up the show. Now George carries the Brand forward fronting a solid 10-piece brigade; with many members now alumni for up to 20 years!  ‘cause “WE FUNKIN’ NOW!”
