Keyboard Player

Following our recent tour, keyboardist Jan has decided to part ways with Esoteric. We wish him every success in his future endeavours. We are therefore in search of a suitable replacement. Anyone interested should be in the West Midlands area of the UK, or have the ability to get to central Birmingham for weekly rehearsals. Experience and own equipment is a must. Contact us at
