'''OreSkaBand''' is an all-female ska band from Sakai, Japan. They have performed in Japan, Canada and the United States, including the Fuji Rock Festival.

The band name, "ore ska band," literally translates as "we're (a) ska band." While "ore" is normally considered a masculine pronoun and an informal way to say "I" in Japanese,[http://www.sf.airnet.ne.jp/ts/japanese/pronoun.html 8.1.
