Even though they never officially broke up, it had been 17 years since The Smugglers last performed. The crowd, with many fans travelling to Vancouver from across Canada and the States (someone came from England), roared their appreciation as soon as the band hit the stage. The Smugglers, led by Grant Lawrence, hit the stage running and never let up. This reunion concert came about with the publication of Lawrence’s tour diaries, Dirty Windshields: The Best and Worst of the Smugglers Tour Diaries.
