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 3 p.m.Monday through Saturday at the Manteo-based Triple A station 99.1-The Sound. We stream at 991thesound.com. I'm also heard 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday 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

As a bride trying to plan a destination wedding in the Outer Banks, John Harper was a saint, offering to help in any way. Initially, I did a lot of online research trying to find the best of the best for a DJ and photographer, John Harper's reviews moved him to the top of the list of desired DJ's. In emailing both the photographer and DJ, they individually offered to give additional recommendations to make the best choice possible being a bride planning from afar. Both recommended each other and offered to help in any way possible, from looking at event homes, giving their professional opinion, and going out of their way to assure my questions were answers and I felt confident in booking the vendors.

John was always quick to respond to emails, and phone calls. He helped the reception run smoothly and played a GREAT combination of music to get ALL generations dancing and having a great time! I would recommend John over and over as the BEST DJ in the Outer Banks, you will not be disappointed!

John Harper is hands down the best DJ in the Outer Banks! He was easy to work with and never complicated anything! When planning a wedding that is huge. He played the songs we requested and also has an amazing talent at picking the best music for the specific crowd. All of my guests talked about how great the music was and it is all thanks to John! If you are getting married in the OBX reserve him NOW! He is so good that he books up fast!

We searched a few DJ's in the Outer Banks area and when I contacted John Harper, I really liked talking to him, he was very personable, especially because he called instead of e-mailing back. We went down and meet up with him in NC and my impression was great, he was outgoing, funny and very experienced. I sent him a list of songs, but at the wedding I felt that he read the crowd and knew exactly what they liked. The dance floor was full most of the night. I was amazed. It made the reception very fun!!!

From the minute John started playing music until the very last song everyone was on the dance floor. He definitely knows how to make a party. John was also so personal and friendly and was available by phone to answer any questions. No complaints here!

Mr. John Harper is a fabulous DJ! His smooth radio voice will be a great addition to any wedding! He was able to make the whole night flow with his selection of music. Our wedding had a mix of ages and backgrounds, which Mr. Harper was easily able to cater to; a testament to his many years of professional service. Everyone had a great time - especially us! We had utter faith in his abilities, and we were not let down. Mr. Harper was great to work with. He made the time and effort to support us in whatever way he could.

John Harper was the perfect DJ for our wedding!! He did such an awesome job reading the crowd and many guests raved about the music! He had everyone out on the dance floor. He was also very flexible and he stayed an extra hour when we requested it last minute. In addition, John was always responsive and professional, and he has a great radio/announcing voice!

John Harper is the way to go. Period. When asked by several people in Nags Head who my DJ was, they would swoon after I told them John Harper was our DJ!

He is such a cool guy. We met him at the OBX Wedding Expo and chatted anough to know that he was the one for us. John's a radio DJ for 99.1 The Sound and before the wedding, my husband and dad would listen to the station regularly. As weird as this sounds, he has the perfect voice for announcing. He is easy to understand and pronounces things extremely well.

Something else he does is play to the crowd. I never gave him a playlist for our wedding, aside from the dance songs, and my guests raved about the music selection and everyone had a blast dancing all night!

John Harper was the perfect DJ for our wedding!! He listened so well to everything we wanted. And he could read the response from our guests to play the best choices at our reception. He was incredibly kind and unobtrusive. Everyone raved about him and the great song choices he played. My husband and I agreed that he wasn't our DJ but another guest because he was so much fun!! Hire John for an unforgettable wedding!!

My mom and I met John when we visited a venue on a whim very shortly after my engagement. Though we weren't quite ready to start considering vendors, our brief meeting with him (as he prepared for a wedding) put him on the short list for wedding DJs. When we were ready to choose a DJ, he was our first choice, and he didn't disappoint. He provided us with a great list of things he'd need for the wedding, was available to talk on the phone and really helped me plan my reception timeline. On the day of the wedding the timing didn't go exactly as planned, but John was super flexible and very helpful in ensuring that we were able to get everything done. Beyond that, people were on the dance floor all night with a great mix of music that our guests of all ages enjoyed. We've received many compliments on the great music and how much fun everyone had. We also got a lot of fun dancing pictures. Overall, John was exactly what we had in mind, helped the event run seamlessly, and made me feel calm and at ease!

John was extremely flexible in working with us throughout the wedding process. He even served as a resource for us as we were deliberating on other catering and photography vendors. While John's not the most technologically savvy guy in the business, he did a really nice job and played great music throughout dinner and the reception. He even loaned us a portable audio system to use throughout the week and for our beach ceremony. That came up clutch! John is a great dude!
