In this week's episode, we commemorate Memorial Day by honoring our troops and veterans as we shine a light on our country's premiere military bands. We chat with Gunnery Sergeant Joseph DeLuccio of the United States Marine Band, an oboist in "The President's Own" for the past 16 years. What is it like performing in one of the most prestigious ensembles in the country, in a band that plays gigs like presidential inaugurations and major White House events? Joe shares about getting star-struck, traveling the country and serving as a musical ambassador for the United States.  All this and more, this week on Beethoven Walks into a Bar.
