Partnering with the Ronald McDonald House and Renegade Lighting Rebellion gave Rooftop Sessions Chicago a new perspective on things from their 16th floor activity center rooftop. Tucked away in a stunning new building we were privileged to gain access to this unique venue overlooking the downtown skyline. RLR brought their trademark jazz/folk/experimental seas shanty tones as well as laying down some happy vibes by baking cookies for the kids and their families calling the Ronald McDonald House their temporary home. We were stoked to be privy to this awesome experience and hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed capturing it!
About Renegade Lightning Rebellion
Indie chamber rock band Renegade Lightning Rebellion has been performing relentlessly in anticipation of the forthcoming self-titled EP, a follow-up to their first album, “Four Statues.” RLR’s sound combines a modern Indie rock aesthetic (Fleet Foxes, Dirty Projectors, Sunset Rubdown) with elements of classical counterpoint (Bach) and a literary pop flavor (The Decemberists) for a collection of bizarrely singable melodies. In live shows, audiences have been captivated by the constant switching of instruments among band members, and further drawn in by paintings that illustrate the characters and themes of each song.
About the Ronald McDonald House
The mission of the Ronald McDonald House is to care for families of children with complex medical needs by providing comfort, compassion and a sense of community. RMH keeps families of hospitalized children together in a ‘home away from home’. Located near Advocate Children’s Hospital, Loyola University Medical Center, University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, and the new Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, the Houses allow families to eat, sleep and find the emotional support they need – just blocks from where their child is being treated. This year we provided over 30,000 nights to families, offering them care and comfort during their hours of greatest need.
