Daniel de los Reyes reigns supreme as DRUM! Magazine‘s Percussionist of the Year! But, that’s not all. The votes were cast and Danny doubled up with a second win in the Rock/Pop/Hip-Hop Percussionist category.

As if this wasn’t amazing news on its own, it is with pride that Danny shares these DRUM! Magazine honors with his beloved father, Walfredo Reyes, Sr. who took home the title of Percussion Clinician of the year. It’s all in the family!
