The name Esperanto comes from the “universal” language called Espereanto, it was written in 1887 but never really caught on with the general public. The straight translation of the word means “one who hopes”. We figure music is a universal language and we hope to make this into something cool, so that’s where the name comes from.

Esperanto is an original, dynamic, groovy, dirty, heavy, blues, rock band from Westfield Mass.
