    6'7" - I'm always the tallest!
     
  10. My band is the only "other"??
    We have two monstrous trombone players (6'3-6'4ish and big), a semi-tall and skinny drummer and trumpet player, an average/short guitarist and bassist (I'm 5'8), and a short girl trumpet player. I feel so unique :)
     
  11. Annoyingly enough, she is. I'm 2nd from left here, but I'm leaning against the wall! I swear!
     
  12. i'm in second at about 6'; singer's got a few inches on me. guitarist and drummer are shorties.

    The drummer and rhythm guitar are short weenies, both around 5'6" give or take, I'm 5'11"~6', but the lead guitarist has an inch or so on me.
     
  14. i'm the tallest, and i'm not very tall, the drummer and guitarist are both short.

    At 6'8", I'm probably the tallest person in ANY band. NO, I don't mean that, but I've never met a taller bass or tuba player.

    Does anybody have a theory why?

    I'm 193cm and about 7 cm taller than the second tallest band member(the sínger and former guitarist).
