When Juan Carlos Alfonso broke away to for Dan Den, he took Alfonsito, and possibly others, with him. Meanwhile Héctor Valentín also left - first for Adalberto y su Son, and then to form his own group, which was quite popular for a while in the early 90s. El Padrino stayed, and was joined by Yumurí, Maraca's brother, who later had a successful group of his own, and Juan Miguel Díaz, Angá's brother, who, confusingly, shares the apodo "El Indio" with Sixto Llorente of Aliamén and Trabuco fame.

The new pianist/arranger, Antonio Gómez, was a monster and the group continued brilliantly in spite of JC Alfonso's departure.
