I understand the base concept of LACP. Basically is taken multiple network connection and turns them into one large piple / connection to the server. The problem I have is why and when would you need to create a LACP group?

Depends on what networking vendor you are using, and what your Network Manager wants you to use.

LACP provides many different benefits for creating LAG (trunks), rather than just basic Static Trunks, so if you have LACP available, I would recommend using it.

LACP is just a method of trunking physical network ports on a switch.

Other options include Static Trunks.

HP is one vendor which supports LACP and Static trunks.

LACP is only supported on Distributed Switches.

If LACP is supported by your network vendor if not you can use Static Trunks.

Cisco sometimes refer to Ether channel.
