Many people know Gary Grainger as the 2012 British Blues Award winning host of The Blues Show on BishopFM.
Blues has been a strong influence on everything Gary has played – one Country & Western Band leader told Gary: “Stop Playing The Blues – or go join a Blues Band” – advice which Gary promptly followed.
But it has always been acoustic music in general, and the Blues in particular, that have held their place in Gary’s heart and he currently presents an eclectic mix of Blues and Americana at live venues around the North East of England.
Gary’s current acoustic set includes a mixture of traditional & modern blues tunes, featuring Gary’s lived-in voice & dextrous fingerpicking & slide guitar. His set also includes songs not so much from left field, rather from the West Coast – of the USA. Gary features songs by bands such as Little Feat, Grateful Dead, the Allman Brothers – & ZZ Top!
Live Music Venue
Set just outside of the city centre, Bonded Warehouse is a rare survivor of Sunderland's former industrial landscape.
With its exposed brick, original beams and distinctly urban feel, Bonded Warehouse is a unique venue housed in a mid 19th century warehouse.
Join us in the Tap House, our carefully restored bar located on the ground floor of Bonded Warehouse. A social destination for friends both new and old, it’s the ideal place to unwind in the company of good food and great beers.
Expect to see a selection of both British and worldly hops, carefully selected from some of the UK’s finest independent breweries including Allendale Brewery, Anarchy Brew Co. and Stewart Brewery. You can also get your hands on our very own signature Bonded Session Lager brewed exclusively for Bonded Warehouse.
We're proud to be introducing Tank Beer to Sunderland!
Our Tap House will also be home to our in-house Tank Beer system, which we will be pioneering in Sunderland. Brewed exclusively for Bonded Warehouse, transported fresh and direct from the brewery, our highly hopped session IPA Tank Beer is packed full of juicy fruit flavours, with an extended dry hop adding a punchy tropical fruit aroma.
But if hops aren’t your tipple, no fear, we offer a superbly balanced wine list, creative cocktails and a great selection of gins for you to enjoy.
Here at Bonded Warehouse we know good food to be the key to most hearts, which is why we’re coupling our drinks with a selection of small plates, rotating with the seasons to match your desired beverage.
We’re also proud to call our friends over at Fat Hippo, our new weekly residents! Meaning their bangin’ burgers will be served one day a week from our Tap House too.
Space in the Tap House is also available to book. Whether it's a family birthday or a corporate function, our range of rooms including the main Warehouse space and Tap House mean that we're ideal for events of all sizes.
