The RMPBB (Rodney Marsalis Philidelphia Big Brass) lead by a cousin of the famous Wynton Marsalis is performing Friday evening at the University of Dubuque featuring 3 local artists on trumpet. USMC retiree Steve Matera from Bettendorf is playing Taps as part of Rodney's tribute to Veterans in their show "Brothers on the Battlefield the Power of Love."
