I have known Rob and Ailsa since they first arrived in Tasmania. I have seen and heard many musicians at my venue and would have to say the Rob and Ailsa (DayStar Duo) would have to be the most accommodating, professional, versatile, talented couple I have had here. They are willing to try anything and can fit easily into any situation, comedy, dance, gentle as they have a huge repertoire. To ensure a good night with professional music book them
