Meet Our Host

Tony Styxx is an Indianapolis institution. As much a fixture of the culture as the Salesforce tower in the naptown skyline. He’s hosted a ton of events from open mics to club events, and even is the current voice of Gainbridge Fieldhouse, but with the exception of the arts & activism event called “The Wake”, we’d never worked together in this SPECIFIC capacity…so we threw it out there. And the rest they say, will be history. Say hello to the host of the Melanin in May Festival and master of ceremonies on the performance stage, Ronald A Craig Jr BKA Tony Styxx!
