ORESKABAND returns to U.S. for 2 shows in July


Super energetic all-girl ska band ORESKABAND from Japan�returns to America for 2 shows on the East Coast.

ORESKABAND�created anime themes for Bleach and Naruto.

The members include:�iCas�on vocals and guitar,�tae�on drums,�Tomi�on bass,�SAKI�on the trumpet,�HAYAMI�on trombone, and�morico�on the saxaphone and keyboard (she is currently on hiatus).

Their story began about a decade ago in Osaka, when a few middle school brass�band members got together without much thought and formed "We're Kasu Kasu�American Rozun Ska Band with Cutter Shirts". Of course, the band's original name�had to be abandoned because a certain venue said their name was too long and was�causing trouble for the graphic designer. The girls henceforth called themselves�"ORESKABAND" for short.

The band's first major debut came in the form of "Ore" in 2006, when they were still�in the 12th grade. Before long, their success brought them on stage in Austin, Texas�for SXSW ("South by South West"), which was immediately followed up by their full-album release, "ORESKABAND" in Japan and the U.S.

Their influence in the U.S. reached an all-time high during "WARPED TOUR 2008",�

where the six girls hit 46 cities, a first for a Japanese band, and even collaborated�

with Reel Big Fish and Katy Perry among others.

Over the next five years, they went forward to conquer Japan. Starting with "What a�

Wonderful World Tour 2008 - 2009", followed by "Rock in Japan Festival 2009",�

"Summer Sonic 09" "Set Stock 09", "ORESKABAND presents ei-ei-oh!!! Tour '10", and�

wrapping it up with the "Arabaki Rock Fest 12" and a live performance at Tokyo�

Dome for a 20,000-person audience.

Now, in 2015, the one and only all-female Ska band is pioneering unexplored�musical territory, ready to leave their mark on history. For show details, see below:
