The band had a number of albums and a string of hit singles until 1989. The band’s 1985 album Primitive Love credited the band whereas their follow-up album Let It Loose in 1987 placed Gloria Estefan at the forefront. The Miami Sound Machine continues to perform with Estefan on all her tours and live performances, and has appeared on many of Estefan’s recordings. Estefan, who had formed the band the Miami Latin Boys earlier that year, learned about Gloria through a mutual acquaintance. Gloria, who was attending the University of Miami at the time, only agreed to perform during the weekends so that her studies would not be interrupted. Beginning in 1977, Miami Sound Machine began recording and releasing various albums and 45s on the Audiofon Records label in Miami, Florida. Renacer was released with two different covers.
The group had several more releases on the Audiofon label, the RCA Victor label, and subsequently Miami Sound Machine’s own label Miami Sound Machine Records. In 1978, Gloria married Emilio Estefan, Jr. By the end of 1979, the band was signed to Discos CBS International. Miami Sound Machine then released several albums, 45s, and twelve-inch singles beginning with the 1980 self-titled Miami Sound Machine.
During the 1980s, with the popularity of Miami-based films and television series such as Scarface, Invasion USA, and Miami Vice, the city was gaining a reputation as an exciting and notorious destination. In 1980, Miami Sound Machine added a more complete horn section primarily consisting of trumpeters Fernando Garcia and Victor „Papito“ Lopez and trombonist Louis Perez. The permanent addition of a full horn section added a new dimension and would become a future Miami Sound Machine musical trademark. By early 1982, Roger Fisher was added as a second keyboardist, as well as the virtuoso harmonica player Gustavo Lezcano.
Merci and Raul left the band in late 1982, just prior to the recording of the third CBS International LP Rio. The painfully shy Gloria was now the sole lead vocalist on stage and in the studio. As a result, she began to evolve both systematically and stylistically in her performances. Miami Sound Machine was now a large ensemble. By the early 1980s, Miami Sound Machine had established themselves as major musical artists in Latin America with a strong presence in both the media and on the radio.
The next major hurdle was conquered in early 1984 when a Dutch DJ began playing „Dr. Columbia album, Eyes of Innocence, which contained the Garcia-penned classic, previously released, single and dance hit „Dr. Miami Sound Machine’s follow-up album Primitive Love was released in 1985. While the horn section were featured on prominent cuts, guitarist Wesley B. Wright was the only member of the core rhythm section to actually record on the LP. On all of the previous LPs, the band members almost exclusively recorded the original studio tracks. Phenom session percussionist Rafael Padílla, who performed on some of the LP’s tracks, was now a permanent member.
Venezuelan jazz saxophonist Ed Callé performed on the LP and was added to the horn section. The successful LP launched three top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100: the Garcia-penned „Conga“ reached No. In 1985, Miami Sound Machine appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Solid Gold, American Bandstand, CBS Morning News, Walt Disney specials, and frequent spots on MTV. After a massive world tour that ran from 1985-1986, the following members left the group: guitarist Wesley B. Emilio assumed the role of producer and no longer performed live. With „Kiki“ Garcia being the remaining core member, Gloria Estefan was given top billing and the band’s name was changed to Gloria Estefan and Miami Sound Machine to capitalize on the lead singer’s mass appeal.
In late 1987, Miami Sound Machine released Let It Loose, and it went multi-platinum, with three million copies sold in the US alone. Another world tour began and the group traveled for the first time to Europe, South America and an even more extensive tour in the United States, culminating in a finale with massive sold-out concert in their hometown of Miami, Florida, which was recorded and later sold on VHS. By 1988, founding member „Kiki“ Garcia quit. With no other core members remaining other than Gloria herself, the „Miami Sound Machine“ moniker was to be used from that point on for concerts and live performances only. In 1988, after the worldwide chart success of single „Anything for You“, her Let it Loose album was repackaged overseas as Anything for You. It became the band’s first UK number 1 album, selling over a million copies. It was the biggest selling album of the year in The Netherlands, staying at number 1 for 22 weeks.
By the end of 1988, none of the originating members of the group that once was Miami Sound Machine were performing with Estefan. A new rhythm section was put in place, and the horn section was expanded. Seven members of the Miami Sound Machine lineage appeared in New York City’s staging of the Broadway show On Your Feet! Lorena Pinot, Sohanny Gross and Carla Ramirez. Without Gloria Estefan’s signature vocals or any real connection to the preexisting Miami Sound Machine musicians, however, the new project was only met with moderate success in a few select European countries and failed to chart significantly in the United States.
