I think it is a bit of an exaggeration, however in Seattle, which is not that far away from Vancouver, the JBC played at the Backstage, a venue which holds maybe 300 packed, and it wasn't full: I'd say about 150 to 200 showed for the Condition Blue stop here.
Perhaps the band is better known in Canada?
