    They feel grainy because you shot them at ISO 1600. That's pretty high ISO for the camera.

    Check out NoiseNinja and you can reduce the noise of the images. There's also Noiseware. Either will do a decent job of cleaning up noise once you learn how to use them.

    They also look a little out of focus. You might need a faster lens like f2.8 and use slower shutter speed like 1/80 to get better exposure. It will also help the camera autofocus. At that speed you want image stabilization or tripod.
    Indoor night shooting is hard keep at it.
