Daniel de los Reyes is one of the premiere percussionists in the world. Even if he wasn’t a member of one of today’s most popular band, the Zac Brown Band, his resume is as impressive as anyone’s in the music business. He’s recorded or toured with: Earth, Wind, and Fire, Fleetwood Mac, Don Henley, Sting, Chicago, Ben Vereen, Aretha Franklin, James Taylor, Steve Winwood, Sheryl Crow, and Peter Frampton to name a few. All that being said he’s an even better human being. In our time together, we certainly talked drumming and music. However, we spent significantly more time discussing life, family, priorities, mistakes, ambitions, and giving back. Daniel has seen it all and has walls full of awards to prove it. Right now, one of his priorities is furthering his philanthropic endeavor, Day Glow Music. Danny blends culture, art, and music together to educate and enlighten kids with the hopes that they can share their passion with others. He’s also working to bring relief to hurricane victims in Puerto Rico. We also speak in detail about his current gig, percussionist with Zac Brown Band. He tells how his relationship with the band started, including his first gig with them at Red Rocks, becoming a member and how each person in ZBB builds a group concept that is integral to the success of the band. We finish off with a sprint through the obstacle course that is the DWG Rorschach test!
