What You Know is an original Miami-based band formed in January of 2015 by drummer Nic Collins and bass guitarist Yannick Waingarten. After a few lineup changes, Joey Rodriguez joined the band to take on the role of lead guitarist in November of 2015. Front man and lead vocalist Nick Aquilino joined WYK the following month. The new lineup had instant chemistry and has wowed audiences throughout South Florida and Europe. In a very short time What You Know has graced the stages of The Montreux Jazz Festival, The Sion Music Festival, The Salle Metropole, The Fillmore, Churchill’s and Sloppy Joes to name a few. They will be taking the stage throughout the US and Europe to promote the December release of their debut EP, “Juice”.
The band’s unique sound is created by the wide range of musical idols and genres that the members share. They cite Red Hot Chili Peppers, Led Zeppelin, Marvin Gaye, and Stevie Ray Vaughan as a few of their favorites. What You Know continues to focus on writing new original music while working hard to achieve their goal of being “The Best Live Band experience” in the world!
