3pm is an alternative rock band based in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. It consists of Sarthak Swami (lead vocals/rhythm guitar) Jake Breeze (lead guitar/backing vocals) Sue Tate (Bass/backing vocals) and Taylor Porter (drums/backing vocals). The band was originally formed in the multipurpose room at Taylor's compound by Sarthak and Taylor. It was later in the year, after a school held battle of the bands, where the band took second place, which Jake was added to the group to play lead guitar. The band then shifted its practice location to a slightly smaller but more private and secure location in Jakeâs house. After the summer of 2007 Sue joined the group to fill the missing slot of bass after the band lost its original bassist. Since then the band has sky rocketed in popularity playing in as many as three performances a month. The bandâs latest success story comes from Riyadh when they, along with several other Saudi based bands, took place in a small scale Woodstock concert in June of 2008. After a day of setting up 3pm took the stage to a crowd of over 1000 people to hear what they had to offer. After impressing everyone in the crowd for not only being one of the most enjoyable bands but the youngest and one of the only bands to have original pieces they were asked to go on to perform a second set for the crowd, drawing even more attention than the first time. They were greeted with an enormous applause from the crowd. The band will be re-locating to Austin, Texas in the summer of 2009 to continue their music career and take the career as far as the band can possibly take it.
