With blue jeans & cowboy boots  mounted, CoachellaValley.com rode into The Warburton Celebrity Golf Tournament’s annual Songwriter’s Night at the JW Marriott Desert Springs in Palm Desert rubbing elbows with the likes of Super Bowl winning quarterback Jim McMahon of the Chicago Bears, pro football player, valley native & actor Fred “The Hammer” Williamson & Patrick Warburton himself to name a few.

The music filled evening kicked off Warburton’s perennial benefit in which all  proceeds go to St. Jude Children’s’ Research Hospital .

Warburton made a brief statement filled with appropriate adjectives before introducing the opening act, “It is marvelous tonight. It’s a really special night. It’s really, really cool”.

Warburton’s trusted friend, comedian & celebrity impressionist Mike Wilson opened the show with some of his well-known impressions at times cracking jokes directed at Warburton himself.

Robin Meade played host of the evening introducing the performers and keeping the audience in line at one point laying the law of a songwriter’s night; Rule #1: “When they’re singing or talking you don’t talk”. Rule #2: “No drinking during the gospel songs”. Rule #3: “No gospel songs”.
