About
Who Knew is the HEART project of Kelli Ann. Vocalist, violinist, guitarist, keyboardist, and more - she and the entire team of Who Knew work constantly to ensure that Who Knew is not "just another" another cover band. Kelli Ann has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Wild Horse Saloon, and across the county as a solo artist, as well as with various groups as a lead singer and violinist. Ken Becker, Jarrett Donohue, Matt Cordier, Brian Garibaldi, Jackie Rada and Johnny Flaminni have also toured across the country with various projects, all teach music and have extensive repertoires. Samantha and Jessica add incredible harmonies and energy to everything they do, and are incredible members of the Who Knew team.

Within the first three years, beginning in 2008, Who Knew had already performed for over 200 shows, including playing for the Australian Consulate at the Trump Towers Chicago. Soon after that event, we received a letter from Elizabeth Schick, Consul General, which reads: "The event guests were impressed by your group's versatility and genuine talent".If a crowded dance floor is indicative of a successful evening, then I heartily congratulate you all on a job well done. We look forward to further opportunities to hear Who Knew perform and wish you the best with your future endeavors."

Who Knew was also named the Chicagoland's BEST DANCE BAND! This is QUITE amazing - as we are NEVER TRACKED - ALL LIVE!!!! ALL THE TIME! Kelli Ann and Ken are also signed to an acoustic CD, and are working in studio on this adventure.

Who Knew also features a FLEETWOOD MAC Tribute Band, and an ORIGINAL band called LILLIAN RAIN. Just to add a little spice to the mix.

We love what we do, we do what we love. There is ALWAYS a personal and professional touch with Who Knew - this is not some "company" - is is a passion. Thank you for considering Who Knew for your event! We look forward to working together, to ensure the BEST musical experience possible.

Chip and Kelli Ann were great to work with! They were able to meet our needs and provided great music and entertainment! This was the first time we had a live band and Who Knew raised the bar for our future parties!

Most of the guests stayed until the end of the reception...they were even asking for Who Knew to play longer! I got so many compliments on the band, it was ridiculous. and they were great to work with the whole time! I couldn't have asked for more. They definitely made our reception what it was. I recommend them times 100000!

Who Knew played the perfect blend of classic oldies, rock and roll and modern pop that kept the dance floor packed all night long. A number of guests commented on how good the band was and how much fun they had dancing. I couldn't have asked for a better band to play at my wedding and give us a three-hour dance party. I would highly recommend Who Knew for anyone in the Chicago area who wants to an upbeat and lively band who will keep everyone dancing all night.

Who Knew Entertainment played at our wedding in Chicago on 12/10/11. They were AWESOME! We can't speak highly enough about Chip and his Crew. From our first encounter, they remained responsive, timely, organized and extremely accommodating to our event. The diversity of the Band allows them to play multiple styles. For example, they played a piano and vocals during the cocktail hour, and played dance music the rest of the night (even with a bit of Country for my Texas roots)! We had a wedding party FULL of dancers, and from the first "open dance floor" song, EVERYONE was on their feet! The band absolutely made our wedding a success. Thanks Chip!

Very easy to work with and helped us to set up a playlist that was exactly what we wanted. They were very lively and fun and our crowd did not want the night to end. In short, Who Knew made our reception!
