Daniel de los Reyes (born July 18, 1962) is an American percussionist born in New York City and raised in Puerto Rico and Las Vegas. He is of Cuban and Puerto Rican descent and a third generation musician. He received his early drum instruction from his father, Walfredo Reyes, Sr. His grandfather, Walfredo de los Reyes II, was one of the founding members of the Cuban orchestra, Casino de la Playa.[1] De los Reyes has performed with various artists such as Don Henley, Earth, Wind & Fire, Sting, Billy Joel, Sheryl Crow, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, and Yanni, among many others, and became an official member of the Zac Brown Band in 2012.

He has formed his own entertainment company, DrumJungle, Inc., and produces the "DrumJungle Primal!" show, which combines high-energy interaction between drums, percussions, dancers, and singers, fusing together rhythms from around the world for a multi-cultural experience.

De los Reyes has also invented the "Practice Pro Pad" which is an all-in-one practice timbale and realistic sounding conga, and the LP "One Shot Shaker" with a design that enables both novice and professional musicians to execute simple or even the most complex rhythms for an entire musical track with improved precision and ease. De los Reyes currently resides in Fayetteville, GA alongside Zac Brown.
