We Help live production crew to survive in times of hardship.


Tony Laurenson, founder and CEO of Global Infusion Group set
the standard for tour catering when he launched Eat to the Beat in 1984. He understood the importance of great food, served with a sense of humour and a friendly face, not just for the artists but also the crew backstage.

An outpouring of love and kindness from across the industry has
followed the announcement of Tony’s passing. Bonnie, his family and colleagues have been overwhelmed by the hundreds of messages of support they’ve received with many have asked about where to send flowers etc.

They’ve suggested donations, rather than carnations with funds
going directly to Stagehand. Tony was a founding member of the PSA and lifelong champion of the industry’s crew. At a time when things have never been tougher for the industry, it seems fitting that those who would like to celebrate Tony’s life can also help the crew who rely on it for a living and are finding things so difficult right now.

We hope that you’ll join us in donating to this great cause and raising some money in Tony’s name.
