As they describe themselves: "Trying to fit LCGC into a neat slot is virtually impossible. They are an adaptable, small or large group. LCGC is known for their up-tempo gospel flair, swing-beat, R’n’B, traditional and soulful arrangements, with their invigorating choreography and vocal gymnastics - LCGC is outstanding to watch!"
