The New Morty Show is out of control! Their shows are performed much like old Louis Prima and Keely Smith revues. The band is fueled by their vocalist Vise Grip (a.k.a. Bald Guy). Vise is a singer, comedian, and an actor. His style comes across as a mix between Cab Calloway and Jimmy Durante.

They really mix up their styles of swing. They range from the old Woody Herman favorite "Caldonia", and they songs such as Billy Idol's "White Wedding" and Metallica's "Enter Sandman" and they turned them into swing songs! That's gutsy!!! The best way to describe them is to say that they are a swing band that has a ska/punk intensity to them.
