Walfredo Reyes, Jr.

Walfredo "Wally" Reyes, Jr. (born Walfredo de los Reyes Palau IV on December 18, 1955 in Havana, Cuba) is a Cuban American expert in drum set and auxiliary percussion, a music educator, and a clinician. He has performed with many jazz, Latin, World music, World fusion, Afro-Cuban, and rock bands as a touring, session recording, and full-time player. Reyes is known for his fusion of many of the world's percussion techniques, including the ability to play a drum set with his hands in addition to the traditional use of drumsticks, whereby it is said that he can "sound like a drummer and a percussionist at the same time".[1][2] He is well known for having been a long-term member of Santana, and for being the newest member of Chicago.[3][4][5]

Biography

The native name of Walfredo de los Reyes Palau IV is a traditional Cuban combination of his paternal and maternal surnames. However, in his professional career, his name has taken on the Americanized truncation of Walfredo Reyes, Jr. He is a third generation musician in a prolific professional musical lineage on both sides of his family, including several globally notable percussion experts.

His father is percussion expert, Walfredo Reyes, Sr.; one brother is World music percussion expert Daniel de los Reyes; another brother is actor Kamar de los Reyes; and, his grandfather is trumpeter and Cuban orchestral organizer, Walfredo de los Reyes II.[6][7] Coincidentally, his father had been professionally credited by the same name, Walfredo Reyes, Jr., for his own percussion work throughout the 1940s to 1960s, in order to differentiate himself from his own father.

To characterize his intense familial roots in the musical arts, Reyes jokes, "I wanted to be a brain surgeon, but they wouldn't let me."[7]

Reyes has had a lifelong interest in the music of Chicago Transit Authority, now known as Chicago. He says that their debut album, Chicago Transit Authority, was the first album that he had ever purchased as a youth with his own money.[7]

Career

Leading up to his present role with Chicago, Reyes had had an obvious connection with the band as a lifelong fan of Chicago, as a long-time friend of and collaborator with Chicago's drummer Tris Imboden,[8] and as brother of Chicago's former auxiliary percussionist Daniel de los Reyes.[6][7]

Reyes has globally toured or recorded with many major groups, including the following:[3]
