Just look at the calendar of rehearsals for the band.
Eleven more general rehearsals, various rehearsals for different sections of the band and a concert on the 28th which no doubt will be a run through in public of the programme for the competition on the 5th March.
Then look at the timings. During the week, they have to be after work and leave time for a meal so we are looking at a 9:30 to 10pm start.
By the time we get to Alicante, the band should be well fired up and ready to face anything.
