Rafael Ithier, is a former member of Rafael Cortijo's "Cortijo y su Combo" orchestra. After singer Ismael Rivera faced legal problems in Panama, some of the group's musicians departed, with Ithier relocating temporarily to the eastern United States before returning to Puerto Rico. Rafael Alvarez Guedes, the Cuban-born owner of the Gema recording label (and brother of comedic actor Guillermo), needed a backing band to record an album for legendary Dominican merengue singer Joseito Mateo.

El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico - the guys put on on a great show! I have seen them perform three time now and love to see them. They totally turned their song list around last night, still hitting the favorites and popular songs. When your celebrating 56 years I guess you have a long playlist to surprise a faithful follower. Till next show guys. The 3 1/2 Stars is due to the Venue. Large but seeing them perform was not easy as it was a flat dance floor layout. I’m spoiled as I have seen them in concert hall settings, or B.B. Kings with a taller stage. Still had a blast !!!

El Gran Combo, an entertaining, exuberant, exciting Latin Tropical Orchestra Band, is inspiring to watch and absorb the feel of Latin music. El Gran Combo is GREAT MUSIC for salsa dancing.
