"A self-described "classically trained garage band," the group blends classical themes and bowing techniques with bluegrass-style fiddling, jazzy bass lines, and the occasional hip-hop riff." -The Wall Street Journal

Time for Three, the world's first classically-trained garage band, defies traditional classification. Performing music from Bach and Brahms to their own arrangements of The Beatles, Katy Perry, Mumford & Sons, Kanye West and Justin Timberlake, they have played everywhere from Carnegie Hall to jazz clubs, European festivals, NFL games, and the Indy 500. Their hit YouTube anti-bullying video "Stronger," featured on CNN and the Huffington Post, has inspired students around the globe.
Comprised of Zachary (Zach) De Pue, violin; Nicolas (Nick) Kendall, violin; and Ranaan Meyer, double bass, the trio played together for fun while students at Philadelphia's Curtis Institute of Music. Zach and Nick discovered their mutual love of fiddling in the country western and bluegrass styles. Then Ranaan Meyer introduced them to his deep roots in jazz and improvisation. After considerable experimentation, the three officially formed Tf3, evolving into a charismatic ensemble with a reputation for limitless enthusiasm and no musical boundaries.
