Percussionist Daniel de los Reyes has toured with many music artists throughout the years. About 7 years ago Daniel became a member of the Zac Brown Band.     

When not on tour Daniel pours his heart into educating and mentoring young adults through his DayGlow Music Organization.

Daniel is of Puerto Rican descent and with the mass destruction in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria, he is helping all he can with numerous trips back to Puerto Rico with supplies. Daniel is excepting donations through .

Please help if you can.

A message from Daniel de los Reyes:

“Proud to have with us on our team and next journey to Puerto Rico my friend, my brother Paul Smith. Paul served in the Army until his Humvee was blown up in 2004. He and I met as Paul was in preparations to a climb on Wells Fargo Warriors To Summit Program.”

“We have stayed and grown as friends. Now we are bringing hope and healing through music and basic supplies. With your donations we are able to acquire the best most needed supplies and deliver them by putting it in the hands of the people in Puerto Rico that need it the most. Your donations are greatly appreciated.”
