PANDA Loves Features | Gia Nova

Gia Nova is the sort of feature that has made a big name in the industry for herself by pushing her involvement well beyond the stage. She’s won a number of titles, including Exotic Dancer Magazine’s Entertainer of the Year, Night Moves Magazine’s Best Feature Showgirl, Editor’s Choice, and Fans’ Choice. She’s appeared in Playboy, had a cameo appearance in Rob Zombie’s Halloween2, a featured cameo role in Frankenstein Created Bikers, and most recently was spotted on the set of a Combichrist music video.
Much of that is to be expected for an established feature, but Gia Nova also has some incredibly unique credits to her name. She is the spokesmodel for the Xtreme411 strip club finder app which has made a splash in the industry, allowing customers to find clubs, events, and track features around the country. She is ALSO a celebrity spokesperson for Scares That Care. Scares That Care is an approved 501(c)(3) who fights the REAL MONSTERS of childhood illness, burns and breast cancer by helping families that are experiencing these extraordinary hardships cope with the financial burden.
Make sure to find and follow Gia all around social media-on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter.

unspecifiedPANDA:How would you describe the music in your shows?
Gia: My personal musical preference is usually different than my show music. My performances are a little over-the-top. Since I do a lot of side show, burlesque, horror and fetish themes, I like to use unusual music, but they still have to be crowdpleasers. I will usually find remixes or covers of familiar and popular songs done in a different way. I then further mix them into a coherent show… Soundtrack, for lack of a better word.
P:What is the first song you remember dancing to in a club?
G: I honestly have no idea. I was completely terrified with the worst stage fright ever. I was focusing on not falling off my heels.
P:If you could only dance to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?
G: That’s a hard one! Not catering to a crowd/show music? Really anything by Ghost, Genitorturers or classic White Zombie. I mean, this is for the rest of my life…
P:What is the worst song that a DJ ever played for you?
G: I can not stand ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’. I know it’s not bad for the crowd, but it makes me cringe.
P:What is the coolest thing that a DJ ever did for you?
G: There isn’t just one thing. When I was new to dancing, my DJs gave me moral support and great music suggestions. When I started featuring, it was that times 10, along with money making suggestions on stage. I’ve had quite a few DJs get the crowd started by coming up and playing whatever tipping game I’m playing… Especially rides for five! They are the ringmasters of the club, and a good one is priceless!
P:Pick a great “throw back” strip club track for us!
G: KMFDM ‘Fuck Me’ & Genitorturers ‘Force Fed’
