Look, it's Hem!
Though you can't tell it from this picture, the man with the mandolin is enormously tall. I met him briefly at the wedding of some friends (the ones I helped teach to rhumba). He's one of those people so tall that his waist is at my bustline. I went to high school with a guy like that. Interestingly, that guy's name was also Steve.
