STG Presents & Benise Welcomes BENISE – 20th ANNIVERSARY TOUR at The Neptune Saturday, July 23, 2022.
BENISE – 20th ANNIVERSARY TOUR
A magical event celebrating the ‘Best of’ Benise through 20 years fiery Spanish guitar and dance.
It’s one hot night as Benise celebrates 20 years of taking audiences on a musical journey through Spanish Flamenco, Cuban Salsa, Brazilian Samba, Parisian Waltz, exotic drumming, and more! Performing fan favorites from the last 20 years and debuting new songs from his 5th PBS special ‘Strings of Hope.’

The 20th Anniversary tour establishes Benise’s Emmy Award winning show as one of the longest running global Latin-themed theatrical productions and solidifies Benise as America’s foremost native-born ambassador of Spanish guitar.
For Benise, music has always been a journey. From his humble beginnings as a street performer, to being featured on the #1 rated show in the USA – Dancing With The Stars, and performing around the world. “I wanted to push the boundaries of Nuevo Flamenco/Spanish guitar while combining the elements of dance and theater. This show is a celebration of all the shows we’ve done over the last 20 years,” comments guitarist and creative force behind the event, Benise.
The Emmy Award-winning composer along with an international cast of musicians and dancers will entertain audiences with a two-hour show that “is an escape from all of their problems,” Benise says. “Much like the recent PBS special Strings of Hope, with this show I want to take the audience on an escape...to a beautiful Spanish courtyard filled with Flamenco dancers, stunning costumes, and fiery Spanish guitars." Beyond the new material, BENISE says “the live show will incorporate some fan favorites from my street performing days and rock classics like Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir and AC/DC’s Thunderstruck.”
BENISE adds, “This is a great show for the whole family; I really think we have something for everyone. I hope people will be inspired by our story, by the music, by the production--and have the passion to follow their own dreams. I have always been a gypsy and love to travel, my heritage is Bohemian (from Prague), so I think it’s in my blood. I can’t wait to go to new cities, meet new people, and play every night--it’s what I live for.”
