3-D was a short-lived American rock band of the early 1980s, best known for the hit singles "All Night Television", "Telephone Number", and the New Wave classic "X-ray Eyes".

They toured with such groups as The Ramones, The Cars, Eddie Money, Poco, and U2. Keyboardist Teddy Wender and Vocalist Ric Zivic have a music production business currently in Manhattan where they produce music for TV and commercials. U2 opened for 3-D at the Ritz in April 1980; they also appeared on Saturday Night Live that same month.[1][2] They opened for the J. Geils Band on the Love Stinks tour circa 1980. Ric and Ted also produced the music for The Learning Channel's children's show Bingo and Molly and the current popular show Overhaulin.

As a keyboardist, Ted has recorded and performed with Michael Powers, Albert King, Wilson Pickett, Ben E King, Dr. John, Johnny Winter, Rick Derringer, Gordon Waller (Peter and Gordon), Paul Jones, Odetta, Bill Chinook, Ray Draper, Gary Stewart, and Loudon Wainwright III (Ted played piano on Dead Skunk). Ted also composed two dance hits for the Doobie Brothers and the Memphis Horns. Teddy first started recording with the underground classic country rock band, White Cloud, which members included country fiddler legend Kenny Kosek and (dueling banjos) Eric Weissberg. Drummer Mike Fink went on to tour the world with Ron Wood & Bo Diddley in 1987 with the Gunslingers Tour.
