I need to reproduce a curved back for a chair. The piece is 6” wide and seems pretty curved to me. I was planning on trying bent lamination but my concern is with making a cut that “tall” on the bandsaw. Do you think the thickness will be consistent from top to bottom of the cuts.

With proper set up and execution-YES. That said even if you are a little off cut your pieces a skosh thick and run them over the jointer and through the planer. Now you have good flat even pieces. Glue them up in your form and you are golden. You would need to clean them up a little anyway, as coming straight off the band saw would not make a very reliable gluing surface.
