Exquisite Gender

Meet Exquisite Gender, an eclectic trans explosion that doesn’t just play gigs — they create extravaganzas. Exquisite Gender is a dynamic rock band from Atlanta and Athens, Ga. Its members are veteran guitarist, songwriter and vocalist Bucky Motter, JoAnn Pfeiffer on guitar and synth guitar, Shanti K on bass, and Mandi MacDonald on drums. Bucky Motter is a veteran of the Atlanta music scene and has opened for such artists as BB King, Indigo Girls, Melissa Ferrick, Doria Roberts, Sonia Leigh, and the Manhattan Transfer. He has two critically acclaimed CD’s: Outta Control and Pleasure and Pain. JoAnn has mad skills on the guitar, no doubt due to her classical training. Besides blazing guitar solos, she arranges piano parts for the guitar, which is no small feat. Tunes featuring piano are covered by JoAnn’s sometimes sensitive, sometimes rockin’ touch by using a guitar synthesizer. Shanti K is also an Atlanta Music scene veteran. She’s played bass for Rules of Attraction, Midnight Blue, and Heatwave. Presently, she performs with the Hare Krishna Rock band “Murari Band”. When she received the invitation to try out for Exquisite Gender, she jumped at the chance and it’s been a great match since day one! Hard driving drummer Mandi Mac has played for several metal bands The band is extremely unique in that all of the band members are transgender and hope to help blaze a path of understanding through music. Exquisite Gender is known for their covers of the award-winning Broadway play Hedwig and the Angry Inch, as well as rocked-up originals by Bucky, and cover tunes ranging from Glam, Metal and LGBT themed music. Exquisite Gender exploded onto the Atlanta music scene in February 2018 , performing at Out Front Theatre. In October 2018 they exhibited their musical talents at the Atlanta Pride Festival. The band has also thrilled audiences at 10 High and Smith’s Olde Bar, and recently selected to perform a return engagement at Atlanta Pride 2019 on the Nissan Stage Exquisite Gender: Expect the unexpected.
