Benise’s Fiesta! Fires Up the CCPA on Fri., March 15, 8:00 PM

CERRITOS, CA – This one’s gonna be a sizzler! Armed with his Spanish guitar and a stage full of musicians and elaborately choreographed dancers, Emmy winner BENISE brings FIESTA! to the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts (CCPA) on Friday, March 15, 8:00 PM. Tickets for the sensational showcase start from $49. A $105 VIP package is available on a limited basis.

Benise woos the audience with a romantic and magical musical journey, using dance and his Spanish guitar to inject energy and intensity into his fresh interpretations of classic Rock anthems from Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. The “Prince of the Spanish Guitar” adds his signature touch to classics such as Ave Maria, Moonlight Sonata, and Antonio Vivaldi’s Summer from The Four Seasons. It’s a fiery showcase of Spanish Flamenco, Cuban Salsa, Brazilian Samba, Parisian Waltz, and exotic drumming!

From his humble beginnings as a street musician to performing in theaters around the globe, Benise is celebrated for his virtuoso Flamenco Nouveau style, mesmerizing audiences with colorful showcases filled with vibrant dancers, exotic drums, Romani violin, cirque performers, and dramatic theatrical lighting.

Since age 11, Roni Benise taught himself to play the guitar and mastered a variety of different styles that eventually meshed to become his own unique technique. When he was rejected by all the Los Angeles clubs, Benise started playing on the streets, quickly winning the admiration of native Angelenos and tourists from around the world who called him the “Pied Piper” of the Spanish guitar.

Though unable to read music, Benise composed original works that were embraced widely for their edgy, exotic, and sensual personality. From the street shows, his crowd-pleasing performances took on a life of their own, showcasing a colorful assembly of dancers, cirque performers, percussionists, and African tribal drummers. Benise added stage theatrics and eye-catching lighting to complement the music and mood, dazzling audiences whose word-of-mouth quickly led to sold-out concerts worldwide and the Emmy-winning PBS special Nights of Fire!
