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

"A DJ why do we need a DJ." That was my answer when two close friends popped by one evening a few weeks before our son was getting married. The friend and his son were both former DJ's. He was almost angry because his son was my son's Best Man. "You mean these two never thought of a DJ?"
The discussion turned to why would you risk all the effort and expense of a wedding going off the rails by not having a good DJ. Well that was all I needed to hear. I did my research and made a contact that night for what my research told me was the top DJ on the Outer Banks and rated as a top DJ on the east coast. Well it turns out John also knew the members of the Band Delta Rae from a broadcasters convention he attended and then later had play live on his broadcast when they played Nags Head in 2014 or 2015. Delta Rae is my brothers kids and my son and daughter's favorite cousins. The wedding was a smash and John really did bring it home. I think he would agree it was somewhat miraculous how rain was called for all day and it threatened but not a drop fell! Along with Currituck Barbecue this wedding was so fun and everyone had such a fun time watching a very sweet couple get married! I would do this again for my daughter's wedding in a heart beat! Thanks John you really helped make it such a special day! My wife was particularly touched by you call and comments a few days later.

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!

We love John! From the first time I spoke to John, I knew he was ready to party! We had such a fun time at our wedding! The dance floor was never EMPTY! All the guests were commenting how that was the best playlist (some even wanted a copy of his playlist). John was so easy to work with and helped a lot with our timeline and kept us on track. Thank you so much John!! :)

John was very nice and very helpful!! He was actually the one vendor whom didn't stress me! Lol! I had some issues before our wedding with my mother getting very sick and typical wedding craziness and he understood, actually asked how my mom was doing and helped me finish our set list, we literally decided on two very important songs the night before the wedding due to all the craziness!! He was on time and professional, he was nice and friendly, I would def recommend him to anyone!

We met John at the Outer Banks Wedding expo and knew immediately that he was the dj we wanted. He was laid back and confident and not at all pushy. He was by far the easiest vendor to deal with. I can't remember a single time during the reception when people weren't dancing. He read the crowd perfectly. I'm glad that we ordered a larger dance floor because he had us dancing all night. Best dj ever. I'd recommend him to anyone who asked.
