[[Cuarteto Leo]] was the leading cuarteto band for almost 30 years, into the 1970s. It established the sonic texture that prevails in cuarteto to this day.

In the 1980s, [[La MonaJiménez|Carlos ''Mona'' Jiménez]] became the foremost exponent of cuarteto after the break-up of his two-member ''Cuarteto de Oro'' ("Golden Quartet"). He established a pattern of nonsense humor andextravagant behavior that many tried to ape without much success. One of his most popular songs was ''Quién se ha tomado todo el vino'' ("Who drank all the wine?"), which was danced with a characteristichand move.

Others, such as producer-bandleader ''Negro'' Videla, traveled to the Dominican Republic and [[Colombia]] to expand the range of their repertoire. Videla is the unofficialambassador of Dominican music in cuarteto, with successful covers of merengue hits.

Since the late 1980s, the [[Tru-la-lá]] band has enjoyed great support from dancers. At one point they were endorsedby the [[Catholic]] church for avoiding racy themes in their lyrics. All in all, they have sold over a million records and performed in some 5,000 dates.

[[Rodrigo Bueno]] became the leadingcuarteto singer in the mid-1990s, and made inroads into Buenos Aires middle-class audiences. He died in a car crash in June 25, 2000. Many people believe the crash was not an accident, as Rodrigowas (allegedly) a pawn in a feud between rival mobsters. His song ''La mano de Dios'' (The Hand of God), which celebrates [[Diego Maradona]] through his [[Hand of God goal|most famous goal]],has become a dance classic in Argentina, and was covered by Maradona himself in his successful 2005 talk show.
