David: Wedding 11/20/2016

Put simply, John is as good as it gets. ... when my daughter told us she was getting married, the first thing I did was to book John as the DJ... If you are looking for someone with impeccable attention to detail, flexibility, and skill in making the event and the individual pieces of that event come together seamlessly, you have found the person you want.

John was awesome! We had tons of last minute changes and he did a great job accommodating and making things smooth and awesome!! Thanks so much John!!!

Erin: Wedding 10/15/16

John is great! ... He played the songs that we wanted as well as played songs to keep the party alive, let's just say I have never seen my Mom dance so much. ...

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

Sydney: Wedding 5/13/16

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! ... 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 0n the Outer Banks!

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!!

"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. "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 that John the top DJ on the Outer Banks and rated as a top DJ on the east coast. .... 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! ...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.

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 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!


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 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!
