Blas Morera grew up watching his father excel in the merengue circuit with his band which was the first merengue band to come out of New Jersey. Blas was already performing in talent shows at the age of 9. By age 15 he was recording demos with a small production company based out of Newark, NJ. By the age of 18, he had achieved international success with his top charted hit "Lover" with the record label Smack Productions
. Blas then moved on to study theatre, dance and vocal on Broadway, to polish up his many talents. He uses his Broadway dance experience in helping him choreograph the groups insatiable dance routines.
In 1997, Eddie Perez
, producer of Blas' hit single for Smack, approached José and Elder about a merengue concept. Blas and Raúl knew each other from high school and through mutual friends having all lived in Passaic and Patterson NJ. Under the direction of Perez, these four young stars came together and began to develop the idea that became Frase Klave (Prestigio Recordings, 1999)
