Danny Schneider is a longtime musician and songwriter. He’s played big name clubs on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles such as the Roxy and the Troubadour; he’s self-produced 5 CD’s and a vinyl EP; and he’s performed with his band, The Neon Flamingos, at numerous venues. His latest project, an album titled “On the Other Side of the Window,” has led Danny to delve into a new venture…fundraising for Sacramento nonprofit Joshua’s House Hospice.
Joshua’s House Hospice for the terminally ill homeless plans to open doors on its first location by fall of 2021 and hopes to add 1-2 more locations shortly thereafter. Though COVID-19 threw the organization many a twist, it has prevailed, and it continues to fight for a place where terminally ill unhoused men & women can be sheltered and cared for with love, compassion, and dignity in their final days. There is no other facility like this on the west coast, and it is something that is desperately needed in Sacramento as the numbers of individuals living on the streets and riverbanks continues to increase. The first location will be announced soon. Joshua’s House Hospice has support from Mayor Darrel Steinberg, Congresswoman Doris Matsui, Sacramento City Council member Jeff Harris, and many other local dignitaries. In addition, corporate sponsors include Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Health, UC Davis Health and Dignity Health.
After working on an album in 2019 and recording 9 new songs with original lyrics and music, it became clear to Danny Schneider that there was a real purpose behind his album project. While in the process of recording the album, Danny happened to see a TV segment about Joshua’s House Hospice that gave him great inspiration. It was that exposure to the story behind the organization, named for the grandson (Joshua), who had experienced homelessness, of founder Marlene von Friederichs- Fitzwater, that prompted him to come up with the idea to use his music to fundraise and support Joshua’s House Hospice. And with 78 of the 100 copies “sold” and the $10,000 goal so close, Danny wants to “end on a high note.”
