Brilliant musicians “DayStar Duo” have been an instrumental part of the success of our business, “Mad About Saffron”, Designer Fashion Boutique.

Having played at all of the major fashion show/dinners we host, their absolute professionalism,  musical brilliance and lovely personalities, has been a major  draw card , and contributed greatly to  the fun and success of our events.

I could not recommend them more highly for any celebration or event ...beautiful musicians and people!

Our school were thoroughly entertained by Rob and Alisa's performance. Presenting to the entire school, in a remote area in a one hour time-slot on the subject of Australian History was a task undertaken with great creativity supported by obvious thorough preparation. The pace of the performance, coupled with the imaginative use of props and music, ensured the students were enthralled and informed - a marvellous achievement and an impressive talent!

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 accomodating, 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 profesional music book them.

This gives me great pleasure to recommend Rob and Ailsa Nicholls as I first saw there act at the Huon Valley Rotary Apple Races and booked them to open at A Taste of the Huon Festival in which they entertained the crowds as the Festival started and cannot wait until the 2011 Festival when they will be doing a themed performance for young and old great entertainment.
I have no hesitation in recommending them for any function.

Rob and Ailsa Nicholls of Day Star Entertainers were selected to provide
entertainment at our Annual Regatta (one of the largest keel boat Regatta's
in the Southern Hemisphere).
We had an overwhelming response from those who attended who enjoyed their
repertoire which suited all ages. The Club received complimentary letters,
emails and telephone calls singing their praises.
 Their equipment and professionalism were outstanding and immediate
arrangements were made to book them for our next Regatta.

My testimonal is through a personal friend Ailsa and Rob were recommended to me when I was looking around for professional entertainers for my 50th Birthday. I booked Daystar Entertainers after my first meet with them.  They are both very talented, obliging, versatile professional people.  Loving singing myself I personally entertained my guests with a couple of songs at my 50th.  Feedback from my guests was very positive and so much so friends andmyself have attended other functions EG: Halloween, Macquarie Bar and a Make Wish Charity event in which Ailsa and Rob were the entertainers.
Daystar Entertainers I highly recommend to any function,

Make A Wish

DayStar Entertainers have been performing at Club Med Lindeman Island since the year 2000. Friendly and professional, Rob and Ailsa have an extensive and varied repertoire - Country, Australiana, Old Standards, Rock'nRoll to mention a few. Their upbeat rhythms and vocals are real crowd pleasers, as are their costumes which match impeccably their themed song sets. Their appeal to all ages and nationalities is instantly established through their versatility, humour and obvious musical talent - so important in an international setting like Club Med. Moreover they are able to adapt easily to more intimate settings if required with use of acoustic guitar and flute. They remain our favourite choice when it comes to live music. DayStar Entertainers are a professional, hassle-free and consistent sure winner when it comes to live entertainment. Rob and Ailsa, you are fantastic!

I have had the pleasure of working with DayStar Entertainers since 2003, and at all times I have found them to be most professional and entertaining. Their variety and breadth of repertoire is very extensive and is suitable for all occasions. Rob's expertise as an MC is also extensive and is suitable for any work.
I have no hesitation in recommending DayStar for your next function where a competent and highly professional musical duo is required.

It gives me great pleasure to give a reference to Rob & Ailsa Nicholls who I have known since 2001.
Both Rob and Ailsa are residents in the Whitsunday Shire and are very well respected by all members of our community.
I can personally recommend Rob and Ailsa as being dedicated, caring and highly professional musicians who have volunteered their talents to many organisations on numerous occasions.
During the time I have known Rob and Ailsa I have found them to be enthusiastic,reliable and dedicated to their profession.
In my view Rob and Ailsa can be entrusted with responsibility of the utmost professional degree and carry my highest recommendation.

Yours faithfully,

Fantasea Cruises has contracted Rob and Ailsa of DayStar on a number of occasions and they have always provided exceptional performances and we found them to be very versatile entertainers.  They are, rightfully, highly regarded in the Whitsunday area.

Kind regards

As President of Zonta Club of the Whitsundays, and also as an active member of the community, it has been my very great pleasure on many occasions to have been entertained by DayStar.  These occasions have ranged from weddings, restaurants, social functions, special occasions and our local Saturday market.  They perform at most of our Zonta functions, often as a donation to one of our many causes.
I never cease to be astounded at the flexibility, talent and variety of their performances which often involve character impersonations and costume dressing.  Their musical range covers the total spectra and nothing appears beyond their capabilities.
Rob and Ailsa have firmly established themselves in the Whitsundays as popular, professional artists who will happily put themselves out to please others.

I have no hesitation in recommending them for any function.
