5.0 out of 5 stars A Celebration of Life, Love, and Music June 17, 2007
By RJRo20
Format:DVD
Roni Benise (pronounced Buh-nes-say) is one of the best performers I have ever seen! According to Wikipedia, he is a "self taught and self described 'Nouveau Spanish Flamenco Guitarist'." Uhhhhh....Self-taught?! You have got to be kidding me! Yes. This is an interesting fact--considering he is a virtuoso of the Spanish guitar--not to mention a superb artist! No doubt. He is an incredibly gifted musician.

Contrary to another reviewer's opinion, I don't think "Benise: Nights of Fire" is a tacky Las Vegas style production. This is a combination of theater and dance, and the costumes represent the extravagant musical style, and of course the rich and vibrant culture of both the Spanish and Afro-Brazilian people. Again, there IS musical substance in this show. The music itself is awe-inspiring, with the romance and exhilarating melodies of Spanish Flamenco, Cuban Salsa, Brazilian Samba, and Benise's own creation: ROCKMENCO! (The unique fusion of Flamenco music and rock).

As a student of the classical guitar, I admire Benise's skill and musicality. (He is right up there with Christopher Parkening--my favorite guitarists of all-time!). He is a mesmerizing performer and an extraordinary showman. As Benise said: "Music. Love. Life." are universal qualities observed in all man. If you enjoy the celebration of Life, Love, and Music, then I highly recommend this DVD to you!

5.0 out of 5 stars NIGHTS OF FIRE DVD June 8, 2006
Format:DVD
Roni Benise invites his audience and viewers on a very romantic journey with his Spanish Guitar, talented band and performers.

The opening scene lets the audience and viewer know Roni's passion for the guitar at a young age.

Accompanied by beautiful dancers and fantastic choreography, Roni's dream is brought to life.

From the hot "Desperado" number to the literally "swept off your feet" performance of Montserrat," Mr. Benise keeps the audience captivated and wanting more.

"Salsa, Salsa" results in a standing ovation. This is one fantastic Cuban number.

A lot of hard work was put into this show proving Roni Benise knows how to entertain his audience with romance, passion and energy.

This DVD is a definite keepsake to treasure forever and makes a fantastic gift.

Highly recommended!!!!

I agree that guitar is not live at times. But try moving around the stage and play the guitar at the same time than you will understand. The show is fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, melts your heart January 9, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was my first Benise purchase. I was not familiar with him but kept catching his songs on my Sirius radio. This DVD is beautiful. The dancing and showmanship is extraordinary. I have watched it over and over again. Benise is Yanni with a guitar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nights of Fire June 12, 2006
Format:DVD
Benise Nights of Fire DVD is a souvenir I new I had to have after attending the live performance. I had disc surgery just 5 weeks prior to the show but after catching the PBS special there was no way I would have missed it. The intensity of emotion that comes from this music is indiscribable. Dont miss out. I would highly recommend this DVD.

The music of Benise is a great combination of rock and latin music with intense guitar, violin and drums. I love the band and the dancing and theatrics of the show make it a dynamic experience. What a wonderful find!

1.0 out of 5 stars selfish con artist
He's a con artist. He screwed over way too many musicians, dancers and artists. Everything will go back to him. No doubt about it. He will never get my support again

1.0 out of 5 stars This guy is a fake!
Just saw him in Reno, NV. The music was canned, his performance was a real sham. The dancers were the only enjoyable part of his live performance. Read more
