Same Side Booth Sitters are a 2-piece country pop outfit from Columbus, Ohio made up up Producer/Composer Jeff Gehlert and Vocalist/Heartbreaker Nicholas Myers. The band was created as a bet...if we can sell 1200 copies of our ep "This is Country", our good friend David Congrove Jr. will get Nicholas Cage's face becoming Ghostrider tattood on his thigh. Pretty good reason to start a country bad, huh?

The last 2 years have been crazy…we’ve scored 4 films, released 2 albums under side projects, appeared on other artists albums, and written dozens of jingles and commercials – but we knew all along we’d eventually get back to our roots in country music.  As of January 18, 2017, we’re thrilled to deliver our first full length country album, “Weathered Past”!

The album was recently reviewed as as, “an infectious, melodic hybrid of Country, Rock, Pop, and Delta Blues”.  “Weathered Past is now available on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and everywhere else music is sold:

Too far? I say not far enough! There have been moments in history that ignited change…moments where the world joined hands and celebrated all that is possible in humanity. Same Side Booth Sitters have achieved this with their debut EP, “This is Country”.

The songs on this album embrace you like a warm shadow on a sunny afternoon. They effortlessly flow like a linen sundress kissing the wind on a breezy fall day.

Someday when the Same Side Booth Sitters breathe their final breath and take that first step into the unknown, there will be no tears…..just a collective, world-wide high five to celebrate the triumph of human ingenuity.

Indie Country for the Masses!

Same Side Booth Sitters started for one reason and one reason only…to win a bet!

On January 5 2013, while watching the Cincinnati Bengals lose an embarrassing first round playoff game to San Diego, we got far too drunk for our own good and somehow came up with this crowning achievement of a bet: If we can write a 3 song country ep and sell 1200 copies within 3 months of the album release date, our dear friend David Congrove Jr. MUST get a tattoo of Nicholas Cage (becoming Ghost Rider) tattooed on his upper inner thigh!

This is the tattoo:

In a moment of drunken brilliance, I grabbed a bar napkin and wrote out the details of the bet with a crayon and had it signed by 3 witnesses:

[Translated: “If I can write a country album that sells 1200 copies, David Congrove Jr. must tattoo Nicholas Cage and Ghostrider on his upper inner thigh (location subject to change)(Must be at least 5 inches tall) (Must be sold in 3 months from album release) – signed Jeff Gehlert, David Congrove, Jon Avila]

This is Dave:

Dave

Dave is a stand-up dude with a heart of gold, but has one MAJOR flaw…his passionate, un-dying love for the film Ghost Rider!  In case you’ve never seen it, Ghost Rider makes No Holds Barred look like Citizen Kane!

Dave assumed the bet wouldn’t ever come of anything since Jeff was generally not a fan of country music……Dave was wrong!  Over the next few weeks, Nick Myers and Jeff Gehlert came together in a den above a coffee shop in Columbus, Ohio and pumped out a 3 track epic (I’m using the word epic very loosely).  It’s gritty, and unapologetic…like John Wayne in “The Searchers” or Lucas Barton in “The Wizard”.

Now we must come to you for help!  We did our job and created the album, now we just need 1200 purchases.  It is a 3 track ep so it will only cost you $3.  If we ever see you in person, we will make up for that $3 with a really good hug!

Please help us in our shaming!

Thank you for your time and consideration,

The Same Side Booth Sitters
