Members of the Phoenix music scene now opening their own bars and restaurants, including Grace Perry of Gracie's Tax Bar.
Last month, we published a story on a current Phoenix-area phenomenon — members of the Phoenix music scene now opening their own bars and restaurants.

In "Demos to Dining: Phoenix Musicians Are Opening Bars and Restaurants," we talked with local business owners behind Crescent Ballroom and Gracie's Tax Bar, Thunderbird Lounge and the Dirty Drummer. We also chatted with a major developer here to preserve Phoenix's culture, and a member of one of the latest restaurant groups in town, Instrumental Hospitality.

The results were sweet and inspiring. The story was even highlighted on KJZZ's radio program The Show.

But if you'd like to put a face to some of the story's major players, including our cover figure Grace Perry and Charlie Levy, take a spin through our accompanying slideshow.
