The group was formed in 2007. The group's name combines the Japanese word ongaku (music) with the Portuguese word gatas, taken from the name of the Hello! Project futsal team, Gatas Brilhantes H.P. (which means Bright Female Cats). Together, the two words literally mean "musical cats" (gatas being the feminine form of the word gatos (cats)), although gatas is also slang for "pretty girls".
In early 2008, Hello Pro Egg members Mano Erina and Muto Mika graduated from the group. Mano continued as solo singer within Hello! Project, whereas Muto left Hello! Project in its entirety to return to life as a normal student and focus on her studies.
In August 2009, it was announced that Noto Arisa and Sawada Yuri would both be graduating from Hello Pro Egg. Sawada also graduated from both Hello! Project and Ongaku Gatas to focus on university. Noto would remain as a member of the group.
Shortly after their winter tour finished in early 2009, the group officially graduated from Hello! Project in March 2009 as part of the Elder Club, but remained together. Afterwards, the group unofficially went on a year long hiatus.
In March 2010, Ongaku Gatas began their spring tour, playing a total of three venues (Osaka, Aichi prefecture and Tokyo) to promote their new single READY! KICK OFF!! released on March 3. Afterwards, the group unofficially went on hiatus once more.
