Call it fate. Call it fortune. Call it inevitable. But Donald “Sno0py” Watts, the Sarasota-based musician and entrepreneur, always knew he was meant for something bigger. And this month, after being “discovered” only half a year ago, Watts sets out on yet another world tour with the B.B. King’s Blues Club All-Star Band, drumming his way to ports as far-flung as Fiji, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. “It’s a great opportunity to experience different cultures and embrace different ways of life,” he says, “and I’m excited to be carving out my own path.” But as Watts traverses the globe, sending back social media shout-outs from each stop, he remembers that “Destined 2 Achieve Greatness” (D2AG) isn’t just the name of his company, it’s a personal motto and a philosophical foundation to be lived every day. So he’ll leave the tourist traps behind and venture into each of the communities he visits, meeting with the locals and encouraging musicality wherever he finds it. D2AG is about building up, he says, whether a kid in New Caledonia playing with his first pair of drumsticks or a struggling entrepreneur finding inspiration in the D2AG social media streams back in Sarasota. “I want to help them to pull out the greatness within themselves,” says Watts. “No matter what that dream is.”
