PHOENIX – Tempe is embracing its history as a Valley music hot spot by making it cheaper for businesses to host live performances for the next year.
The East Valley suburb temporarily slashed its one-time live music permit fee from $1,671 to $200, per a resolution adopted last month. The reduction starts Wednesday and lasts until March 1, 2024.
Popular bands such as Gin Blossoms, The Maine, The Refreshments and Roger Clyne And The Peacemakers got their starts in Tempe.
