I've provided mobile disc-jockey services on the Outer Banks since 1985, playing for more than 1000 wedding receptions and 250 functions (school dances, class reunions, corporate events, Christmas parties,etc.).

Since May 2011, I've been I'm on the air 10 a.m. to noon weekdays at the Manteo-based Triple A station 99.1-The Sound. We stream at 991thesound.com. I'm also heard 6 p.m. to midnight Monday through Friday at Classic Rock 104.9 and 92.3.

From 1985 until 1993, I programmed WOBR-Beach 95FM, the top-rated radio station on the Outer Banks, and one of the first successful AAA (adult album alternative) stations in the country. I also did the afternoon-drive shift and produced commercials.

Prior to moving to the Outer Banks, I was a staff announcer at several radio stations in Richmond, Va., including WEZS-Easy 104, WTVR-Lite 98 and WRXL-XL102. Since 1994, I've been the entertainment writer (mostly music) for the North Carolina section of the Virginian-Pilot, and The Coast, a weekly supplement to the Pilot.

In addition, I've done voiceovers for dozens of local businesses, including Regional Medical Center, Manteo Booksellers and East Carolina Bank. Read less

John was worth every single penny we spent! It has been almost 3 months since our wedding and we still have our friends and family talking about how wonderful and entertaining our DJ was! I was fearful of our older guests not dancing and having an empty dance floor, but I was so happy to see everyone dancing the entire night! We provided John with a list of songs we definitely wanted him to play, which he played, and then he added in other songs and knew exactly what would keep everyone dancing. We also had him announce our wedding party and he had the perfect announcing voice! Before and during our wedding John was so easy to work with and so flexible with all of our requests. Thanks for making our night so much fun for all of our guests. We would recommend John to everyone getting married in the Outer Banks!

John did an amazing job at our reception! He knew exactly how to play to the audience and kept the guests entertained! People were constantly dancing and there was never a dull moment! He is a very nice, laid back guy who was available for any questions or modifications. I highly recommend using his services!

John was very easy to work with. He set up early, stayed until the end, and was very respectful of our wishes (do not play list, etc). We loved the music and everything went off without a hitch despite very little oversight (no day of coordinator). I was more than satisfied with everything!

Simply Outstanding! John Harper was excellent. He listened to what we wanted and was able to adapt to an audience with both kids and adults who kept dancing all night! John definitely has a DJ voice- we were so pleased with him and his work.

John Harper is the man! Everyone was on the dance floor the ENTIRE night and he played exactly what we asked him to. It was a beach wedding, so we wanted beach music and oldies and he did not disappoint. He played an array of both and kept people dancing and excited to hear what would come on next. A week or so before I emailed him songs we definitely wanted to hear and he played them all and then some! He also was great about playing songs and genres we didnt particularly want - rap, group dance songs, etc. All in all, if we could do it over we would 100% pick him again. He has a cool and relaxed personality and was the perfect addition to our day. Thanks John! You are the best!

John Harper did the music for our ceremony and reception. He was an excellent DJ, our wedding song list was all over the place from oldies, to pop, country, rock. He did a fantastic job meshing all of this music and keeping everyone on the dance floor. As the bride, I literally did not leave the dance floor. Once the music started I danced all night! He made sure to check with me on certain songs that were requested from the guests before playing. I would recommend his services to anyone who asks! Thank you John for making our night great!

Thank you for keeping everyone dancing all night long! John is a great DJ, and a wonderful person. Everyone danced all night long, and he was able to keep our wedding going. He is a little old school in regards to paperwork and equipment, but just keep a copy of your documents and you're good to go! Thanks for everything!
