Hi friends! Reef the fox here with your weekly “Reef’s Report.” 

On April 3, my best friend and fox supporter, Zachary James, won a Grammy for Best Opera Recording. How amazing is that? I first met Zach in 2020 when he was in the Keys visiting family. He and my mom have been friends since then, too, but I’m his favorite friend here in Key Largo. 

I was able to”floof time” (equivalent of FaceTime) him after his win and ask some very important questions. So here we go.

Reef: So Zach, how does it feel to be a Grammy Award Winning artist?

Zach: It is surreal, amazing and I am proud to represent Florida in this win, since I grew up in Florida. 

Reef: What is your favorite thing about the Keys?

Zach: Love being so close to the ocean and, of course, Key lime pie.

Reef: Well friend, you were supposed to say I am your favorite thing about the Keys but we will let that slide for now. But what is your favorite thing about me?

Zach: You always make me laugh with your antics.

Reef: Yes, I am quite hilarious. If I do say so myself. So what is some advice you would give to young or aspiring artists after your Grammy win?

Zach: I would tell them to dream bigger than they think is possible. You have to believe you can achieve your goals. 

Reef: Yep. Agreed, friend. Thanks so much for taking the time to talk to me. You are my favorite Grammy winner of all time.

So you heard it here first. Your boy Reef gets all the big names for interviews. Who do you think I should interview next? Shoot me an email with some ideas and I will see what I can do. Email to [email protected]

A fun event happening this Saturday, April 16 is the Full Moon party at Island Grill. There will be Brazilian dancers, drummers and a saxophonist. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the party lasts until midnight. It sounds like a fun time to me, but I’ll be asleep in mom’s bed, so go party for me and take photos. 

That’s all for this week. Check us out at to keep up with all our social media links. 

Until next time, Reef, over and out!
