Jeff Woolsey was raised on traditional country music in the honkytonks, on the North side of Houston, Texas. He spent many Saturday nights listening to his step-dad's band play all the great songs from Ray Price, Johnny Bush, George Jones, Mel Tillis, Faron Young and the many other great country music artists from the ‘50's,‘60's and ‘70's. Jeff would sit on the side of the stage and watch as all of the dancers would pass by him and when one song was over…they would stand in the middle of the dance floor waiting for the next tune. Jeff sang his first song when he was four years old….Charley Pride's, "Is Anybody Goin' To San Antone". From that moment on…he was hooked on singing and hooked on country music. He couldn't wait until the next Saturday night when he could do it all over again.

During high school, Jeff sang most every weekend with his step-dad's band. He was listening and watching every move that was made on stage. When Jeff turned 19 years old, he started his own band. His first gig was as the house band for the same honkytonk where he sang his first song….Little Moe's Ballroom in Houston, Texas. He played many of the same songs that he grew up listening to his step-dad sing, as well as adding his own favorites. Most of all, Jeff paid close attention to what the crowd enjoyed dancing to…just as he was taught. "Keep ‘em on the floor...if you don't, you're not doing your job." That's what he was always told and that is what he has always done….kept ‘em on the floor. That is what has made Jeff and his band so successful.

Throughout the ‘90's, Jeff and his band were one of the hottest bands on the dancehall circuit, playing 150+ dances a year. Jeff released his first single in 1991 and received considerable airplay in Texas as well as other states. In 1994, they were named "Band of the Year" in the Houston area and soon followed with his first album of all original songs. His rise in popularity continued throughout the following years, until Jeff decided to step away from the music business for a while to get "re-energized" after a long stretch of playing many dates over the previous 10+ years.

After a few years away….Jeff decided it was time to re-emerge onto the music scene. The time away was a struggle because the music was in his blood. That is all he had ever wanted to do….play the music that people loved to dance to. In 2007, Jeff released his first album since his return to the stage. This first release was very successful, receiving quite a bit of airplay in Texas and throughout the United States. The album also received much praise overseas from numerous radio stations that catered to traditional country music. Jeff and his band had definitely started making their mark once again in the dancehalls where the crowds grew each time they performed. The hard-core, honkytonk shuffle sound that Jeff Woolsey & the Dancehall Kings were playing really hit home for many folks. Jeff stuck to his guns of playing the music that he loved so much…the music that he grew up with. Now….the word has definitely gotten around the state to all of the honky-tonkers that Jeff Woolsey & the Dancehall Kings, once again, are THE hottest band on the dancehall circuit.

Jeff's most recent album entitled, "Jeff Woolsey & the Dancehall Kings - LIVE at The Western Club" captures the hard-driving, shuffle music that has taken Jeff and his band to the top of the dancehall circuit. Jeff's powerful voice is heard throughout the cd and does not slow down until the very last note. Jeff is most proud of this album because it proves that his style of music continues to do exactly what it has always done… "keeps ‘em on the floor"!
