"Drew Hester notified Chicago that due to his primary passion of playing drums, he would leave the touring band to pursue this passion. Chicago has hired Walfredo Reyes on percussion, who will blow your mind, being a perfect fit for the touring band. In a short amount of time, he already fits the Chicago ensemble like a glove."
