ARIA Award winning composer, Mario Millo brings his band to MEMO direct from sell-out overseas concerts, for his one-off performance of “Four Moments”.
Mario was founding member – guitarist /singer of one of Australia’s finest Progressive Rock Bands: Sebastian Hardie, that formed in 1973 and disbanded in 1975, reunited at brief times until 2018.
In that 44-year period, there was a feature performance at “Progfest Los Angeles”, support performances for Santana, Lou Reed, Osibisa, Yes and a one-off sell-out performance in Tokyo in 2018.
Between 1973 and 1975 Sebastian Hardie produced four critically acclaimed albums, the most famous “Four Moments” which peaked at number 13 on the Australian charts. All albums were released in Australia and overseas.
Since 1976, Mario went on to write award-winning film and television soundtracks including “Against the Wind” with Jon English, producing the chart hit “Six Ribbons” which was translated into “Mot Alla Vindar” and peaked at # 1 along with the Album in Norway. Other film /TV show soundtracks Mario wrote the music for included: “The Light Horsemen”, “Brides of Christ”, “A Fortunate Life” and “Changi”.
