A proud member of the three-time GRAMMY Award-winning Zac Brown Band and Modern Drummer Magazine’s Percussionist of the Year, Daniel de los Reyes doesn’t stop short when it comes to enacting a vision. Whether he is dreaming up his next musical invention or exercising his musical virtuosity in front of thousands, de los Reyes exhibits unmatched spirit and creativity in turning visions to reality.
Daniel has recently aligned himself with Cat® equipment to help build his lifelong dream—DayGLOW Music—an educational development facility that will focus on south metro Atlanta area youths who exhibit musical talent and interest. De los Reyes worked with Cat dealer Yancy Bros. Co's Cat Rental Store to take delivery of a Cat 279C2 compact track loader. After a brief training period, de los Reyes was operating the machine himself and using it to prep the land that will host the DayGLOW Music campus.
At DayGLOW Music, a single-day music education and development center, children of varying age groups will participate in unique music programs that incorporate percussion instruments as the main tool in music enrichment and training. While at the core of the curricula, the music education will also serve as a vehicle to inspire growth and encourage teamwork and inclusion in participating youth.
