DiMartino has performed worldwide as a soloist and with artists such as Henry Mancini, Doc Severinsen, Pearl Bailey, Dizzy Gillespie, and Dave Brubeck. Widely admired for classical and jazz playing, he has also in recent years begun to specialize in virtuoso cornet solos.

DiMartino, along with George Foreman, founded the New Columbian Brass Band. DiMartino also is a soloist with the New Sousa Band and is a featured soloist with the Advocate Brass Band. DiMartino is a popular performer at the Great American Brass Band Festival, which annually draws 40,000 people to Danville for outstanding brass music.
