In recent John Mayer pic with him on Instagram, Dave looks 6'1". Shoes may be a factor.

186cm worst case scenario...
abcd said on 13/Mar/17
With James Hetfield he looks even 2 cm less than him (186 cm) , and he is closer to the camera (google it, his name and James)
Definitely less than 187 cm

Yeah looking at it again I think 6'1 might be closer for him, maybe 6'1.5
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Aug/16
Can look mainly from 6ft1 to near 6ft2
cole said on 5/Sep/13
I think more 185 cm range.
Elijah said on 12/Mar/13
Yeah I'd say about 183, but that's not taller side of average. It's just tall.

Other internet sites have him at anything 6ft2-6ft4 LOL. In reality he is a flat 183cm, taller side of average. It just shows how an actual 6ft can be a pretty good height.

Met him last year, stood next to him for a while. You've got him at least 1" above his real height Rob, he's not this tall. Pretty much 6ft, might be 6'0.5.

Met him. Seemed taller than me. I am 6'3". I would give him at least 6'2".

Clinton being a lift wearer doesn't surprise me.

Clinton appears to be a lift wearer

Heres a picture of him with by this point probably under 6' 2'' Bill Clinton - Matthews would be lucky to be 6' 1'' if this pic is accurate.

He's definitely 6'2. I've met him multiple times and he's the exact same height as my husband.

How tall is Tim Reynolds?

Bill here's the link to the video clip of what you're talking about: Click Here
You can see that at sometimes they look the same height, but as soon as Dave stands up straight, he's got inches over Fallon. I'm telling you, I'm 6'1" and when I met Dave, he was a solid inch over me. I won't give an exact height, but I'll say he's not under 6'2".
Bill said on 8/Jun/09
I wondering if anyone saw him on Jimmy Fallon the other night, because he was more or less eye to eye with Fallon (maybe an inch taller at the most) and Fallon is listed as 5'11"

Paige that's definitely not the case-AT ALL. He is absolutely nowhere under 6 ft tall. I myself am 6' 1" an he stood a good inch over me when I meet him. As for being nice and humble, you're absolutely correct, he is such a nice guy! Never complacent, never big-notes himself.
try.me said on 3/Jun/09
hahaha BS, if you are 5'4'' then how the hell you'd know how tall he is. Pretty much everybody is towering over you.
Paige said on 15/May/09
So funny that DMB fans are all convinced that Dave is 7 feet tall and bullet proof. I met him up close and personal at a press conference in NYC for their second flavor of B and J ice cream. I am 5'4"; Dave is approximately 5'10"-5'11"- a very average size guy. He was extremely nice and seemed very humble.
Hugh said on 7/Jan/09
He should be listed as 6ft2?
David said on 14/Dec/08
David is 6'1"- 6'2" range -- from a personal friend. I'm now 6'1.5 and twenty years ago we where exactly the same height.
When I knew LeRoy he was a lot heavier than when he passed away but if I had to guess he was about the same height as Carter.
Brad said on 20/Sep/08
6' 1" is correct. Glenn was owned by 5"+ at least plus a Portman boost.
ryan said on 28/Jun/08
two's a perfect number, but one? 6'1-6'2
GF said on 29/Mar/08
6'2" sounds about right. He has the build for it.
Markus said on 19/Jul/07
I think your friend has bad judge of height. I made the pic, and I am as tall as my friend on the left, and I'm 6'4.5".
saratoga said on 17/Jul/07
i knew a kid a few yrs back who said he met dave. he is 6'3" and sad dave was taller (and bigger) than he was. one thing i remembered was how amazed he was about the size of his hands.
Markus said on 1/Jun/07
I went to see the Dave Matthews band in Belgium last week, he had a special guest: Tom Morello (Rage against the Machine, Audioslave)
Morello seemed half a head smaller than Matthews, maybe 5-9, still taller than I expected. Couldnt get close though. Morello didnt sound very good, was playing very simple acoustic blues and sang...not so good actually...

Most of the photos from their myspace have weird angles and and have people closer to the camera and what not, but in the beach photo Leroi is wearing shoes and is on the beach which is slanted upwards and carter is in the water which is lower and I think he looks taller than leroi. However, in most of the other photos, Leroi looks taller now that I looked again, so you're probably right. My bad...
D. Ray Morton said on 10/Apr/07
In person, Leroi is just about my height. Carter's shorter by an inch, inch-and-a-half max.
I checked out the myspace photos. In which pictures is Carter taller than Leroi? Thanks.
Aaron said on 3/Apr/07
I disagree with D. Ray Morton. I think that Carter is taller than Leroi. If you go to their myspace and look at their pictures Carter is clearly taller than leroi.

No way! Nearly 6'2?! Why does he look shorter than this in picture and video?
Markus said on 2/Apr/07
I took the pic, my friend on the left has a bit puffy hair which gives him visually 2 or 3 more cm so he looks about 197.
Dave is at least 185, but I think 186, maybe 187. I don't believe 188 though..
I was actually surprised he's that tall, from a distance he looks about 183, or maybe smaller.
Franco said on 1/Apr/07
the tall guy in the pic above doesn't look 1.95cm if Dave is 1.87cm, can't see 8cm difference there, i see over 10cm....Dave is 1.85cm and considering his age i'd say it is the right height.
Devlin said on 26/Mar/07
6-1ish sounds about right for Dave. He was one of the taller ones on the Johnny Cash tribute from about 7 years back.
D. Ray Morton said on 23/Mar/07
Dave's 6'1", 6'1½" tops. Carter's 5'7", 5'7½" tops. He is shorter than me. Curiously listed at 5'10". Nicest Guy Ever. Leroi - 5'8½". Always thought he thought he was shorter than that. Tinsley I'd put at 6'2½. Stefan - looks 5'10", but couldn't say for sure. I'd always wished that someone like Oteil Burbridge or Tim LeFebvre were playing with the DMB instead. Saw Vic Wooten play with the band a couple of times. Sounded amazing.
Aaron said on 22/Mar/07
thanks mike, yeah I always thought stefan to be about 5'11; and carter and leroi to be 5'8 or 5'9 too
Viper said on 21/Mar/07
Wow, I never knew he was this tall. Always looked about 5-10 to me.
Markus said on 21/Mar/07
Reynolds is not just small then....he is tiny!
Like I said, he was hardly taller than Dave, while Dave was sitting and Tim was standing. Hard to say when they're onstage though, but his guitar looked huge on Tim.
Mike said on 20/Mar/07
As for the other band members, I know about how tall they are in relation to Dave, but I always thought Dave was 6'0" tops so I guess that changes everything. Boyd seems about an inch taller than Dave with Stefan looking 3-4 inches shorter. Carter and LeRoi are even shorter, looking about 5-6 inches shorter than Dave. I think LeRoi is the shortest. Here is a good picture: although it's REALLY small. I have the actual poster, though.
Mike said on 20/Mar/07
I met Tim Reynolds and he was literally the smallest man I have ever seen. After I left I passed by him playing guitar on stage and you could really see how tiny he was. I was with my mom who is 5'1", and I can guarantee you that he was no taller than her, maybe even a bit shorter, but it was close. I'd say 5'0", and we were close enough to shake hands.
Aaron said on 20/Mar/07
does anyone know how tall the other members of dave matthews band are: I think Boyd Tinsley (violin) is an inch or two taller than dave, but I don't know about the others.
Aaron said on 18/Mar/07
Damn, I always thought he was shorter than that. I saw him being something like 5'10 or 5'11. Maybe that's because he's not the skinniest guy out there, but seeing that picture I guess he really is 6'2". Right on. Love his music by the way. Saw him on House the other night and I didn't know that he was a good pianist in addition to guitar and vocals.
Markus said on 17/Mar/07
I'm not on the picture, my two friends (my bandmates actually) are.
After the show we had a drink at a café, when we left to get to the car, we passed the venue again. There were like 25 people at the entry, turned out that Dave was leaving the place. The only thing we had was a cellphone with a cam, so that's why the quality isn't that good. (It was dark, no flash...).
I wonder how tall / short his guitarist Tim Reynolds is, I guess he must be something around 5'5" or something.

Which one are you Markus?
Anonymous said on 16/Mar/07
Dave is 6 foot 2. I met him in a sub shop in Cranston, Rhode Island and he was surprisingly pleasent and open for a celebrity. It could have been that we were far away from a big city and there were only a few people in the store, but that's a tangent. My point is he was my father's height- 6 foot 2.5- as they were standing next to each other. I am 12 years old and 5 foot 10, but Dave looked roughly 5 inches taller than me.
Markus said on 16/Mar/07
I made this picture actually, my first celebheight contribution :)
He played an acoustic show with Tim Reynolds, and that guy is really tiny!
Tim stood while playing guitar, and was barely taller than Dave who was sitting down.
He's got a good sense of humor and was very down to earth, had no problem to get on the picture and sign some cd's after playing an exhausting 2,5 hour show.
Derek said on 16/Mar/07
Looks around 6'2".
Anonymous said on 16/Mar/07
By all reports by DMB fans, he's around 6-2, so this is spot-on.

Seems right to me..
