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

Honestly, John Harper could not have done better. We gave him a fairly detailed song list, and he executed to perfection. The ceremony music was perfectly timed. During the reception our guests never left the dance floor. But more, overall John is just a very nice, accommodating person. I would highly recommend him to anyone. A pleasure to work with.

John was a wonderful addition to our wedding. He was easy to work with, helped us troubleshoot an issue with a song we wanted for the father daughter dance, and knew exactly how to get the group moving. We had a small wedding, so wasn't sure how our dance floor would turn out, but our friends stayed dancing all the way til the end!

When I first met John Harper, I knew I wanted him to be the DJ for our wedding. He is laid back, but responsive. I knew he would have a great time with our guests and would make sure our guest were out on the dance floor. He did not disappoint! John is a great value and a great DJ. I would highly recommend him.

John did a fabulous job!! He played the absolute perfect music for us during our reception, based only off of a few songs that we had requested in advance. Everyone kept telling us how perfect the DJ was and how not a single song he played seemed "out of place". He arrived right on time, set himself up, and went with the flow. He is obviously extremely experienced and we are so pleased that John was our DJ!!! I would most definitely recommend him!

My wedding was a destination wedding. John made it easy and simple to plan from a distance. He was easy to talk to and knew what he was doing. He listened to us about the songs we wanted to play but also picked songs depending on the crowed at the wedding.

John Harper helped us throw one heck of a party at our wedding reception. It was a destination wedding and our wedding coordinator referred him. After only meeting him once and speaking to him a couple times on the phone before the wedding, we got a really good feeling that we could completely trust him with the music selection. We only gave him a few "must plays" and a few "no plays" and he completely took care of the rest of the music. Our guests were dancing nonstop the entire night! I would highly recommend his DJ services to any bride or groom.

John Harper did a phenomenal job DJ-ing our 200+ person wedding. He kept the dance floor busy all night and by the end had it completely packed, which was probably the most important thing that we cared about at our reception. John is friendly, laid-back, and very easy to work with. With only 1 short meeting and 1-2 emails, he understood all of our needs/preferences and followed them to the letter on the wedding day. All of our guests who interacted with him had nothing but great things to say, and it was clear to everyone throughout the night that he was enjoying himself and his work. John also had to put up with several of our more boisterous guests making song and speech requests (something we had requested that he not allow for obvious reasons at an open bar wedding) and he did so politely and professionally. I highly, highly recommend John for DJ services and I am so thankful that we had him at our wedding!

We highly recommend John Harper to DJ your next event on the Outer Banks. John was interested in listening to exactly what we wanted and he provided exactly what we imagined. We had a diverse group of people at our wedding reception on Jennette's Pier and we worried not all of them would have a good time. With John behind the music controls, we had people from age five months to 85 out on the dance floor having a blast! John is not only professional, but is just a down to earth nice guy. He was always available to us whether by phone or email, quickly returning any calls we made. Thanks John Harper!
