Beverly: Wedding 10/11/2015

Wish I could rate john higher than a 5 !!! We were so excited to have john as our DJ at our daughter’s wedding reception. Our family has heard john on the radio since we first visited nags head many years ago. And we felt honored to have " a real DJ" host the deception! John was so great to work with during all the planning- and the day of the wedding he had everyone up dancing & having the best time together ! I highly recommend Hohn Harper ! He is the best!!

John Harper is hands down the best DJ in the Outer Banks! He was easy to work with and never complicated anything! ... 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

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!

Wedding Planner Nannette Kallestad, The Proper Setting

As an Outer Banks wedding planner, I take very seriously the vendor referrals that I pass along to my brides and grooms. John Harper is truly a professional in his line of work. He is able to read the crowd at a wedding reception in order to provide the best music at the right time. He adapts to changes in timelines and announcements and does it with a "can-do" attitude. His knowledge of music is far superior to many that I have worked with. In fact, John eats, breathes and lives music!! Lucky are the bride and groom who are able to secure his services for their wedding reception!!

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 hadn't 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!

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!! :)

Sarah: Wedding 08/09/2015

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!.

John was amazing with the music for my wedding. He was so easy to work with during my planning process and he played the kind of songs we were looking for! I would use him again in a heartbeat!

Erin: Wedding 06/30/2014

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!

Lindi: Wedding 05/02/2015

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!
