As a Master of Percussion and Drum set, Walfredo has retained the chair of "beats extraordinaire" for a celebrity list of music elite. Very few could hold the title of simultaneous drummer and percussionist for the legendary rock icons Carlos Santana,Steve Winwood,Boz Scaggs, Robbie Robertson,Jackson Browne and the world has witnessed this feat in world arena concerts, on television , on CD's and DVD concerts and worldwide media. Equally at home with a three piece kit backing infamous R&B/jazz piano man Joe Sample and Layla Hathaway, or on international arenas with french rocker Johnny Hallyday,aussie rock star Jimmy Barnes, master of Rai Music Khaled, laying down the groove for Queen of Salsa Celia Cruz, and on drums, congas and timbales with Latin heartthrobs Ricky Martin,David Bisbal, Cristina Aguilera and Gloria Estefan, and leading his own penned compositions for his eclectic fusion world ensemble "WallyWorld" or playing with The GRS Trio and Carl Verheyen. What drives Wally? His seeking mind. Taught by his own lineage of family superstar musicians (father Walfredo Reyes Sr., grandparents, uncles) Walfredo nurtured a love for teaching found in the groups and street meetings of groove masters - in Cuba, P.R the States, Europe and around the World. These dialogues of rhythm and life infused Wally with a meaningful sense to share his gift, which he has done globally in over 1,000 Concerts, Clinics,Masterclasses, teaching seminars and speeches. Today, when not touring the world or when not booked in the studio on TV sessions, Film and Records, Walfredo devotes enormous time studying and scheduling private students. Fortunately he has chronicled his unparalleled perspectives on his recent Hal Leonard DVD "Global Beats" and now Walfredo is taking his clinics and personal engagements to college campuses, music universities, select high schools and private in-store appearances worldwide. To book an engagement is really simple. Contact is currently on tour with legendary great guitarist/singer/composer Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwodd Mac.Please check out schedule of current concerts.
