Memo Music Hall’s history goes back exactly 100 years to when it opened in 1924. Between 1927 and 1958 it was the Memorial Picture Theatre and then became TELEFIL Recording and Film Studios from 1961 to 1965 where The Easybeats and Normie Rowe recorded. Rowe’s ‘It Ain’t Necessarily So’ was recorded in the same room in 1965, It went on to become the first ever recording by a Melbourne based artists to go to number one in both Sydney and Melbourne.

Brian Cadd also recorded in the room when it was TELEFIL in the 1960s, bringing him back to the scene of the crime where it all began.

Brian’s ‘Dream Train’ album launch came with the first performance of the title track, With Pete Robinson performing some incredible guitar work done by Kirk Lorange on the album.

Brian’s band included Pete Robinson on guitar, John Creech on drums, Paul Cartwright on bass, Shane Reilly on pedal steel and Clare O’Meara on fiddle.
