  • On October 28, 2017, family and friends gathered for Danny’s Tenth Remembrance at A Reason to Survive (ARTS), the nonprofit that is home to the Danny Riley Music Program. The music in the background of the video below is Danny playing the guitar.

    For Danny’s Tenth, his family commissioned the San Diego Dance Theater to make a video of an interpretive dance performed to Danny’s song “Mountain’s Edge.” Below is the video:

     

       

     

    For what would have been Danny’s 30th birthday on December 12, 2017, Maggi and Frank wrote a special verse for the Irish lullaby “Danny Boy.” They recorded it with the technical assistance and melodica accompaniment of Fabio Alejandro Rojas Jimenez at Refugio Music Studio. The voices are Maggi’s and Frank’s with Maggi playing the guitar and Frank a short Irish tenor banjo intro

  • Though your days here were brief,
       Your spirit was alive, awake, and complete.
       May you continue to inspire us:
       To enter each day with a generous heart,
       To serve the call of courage and love.”
