Dave Owen, local Ohio Valley musician, plays guitar in a classic rock band named The Fabulous 52s. The band is composed of four members and are taking the Ohio Valley region by storm with their brand of rock, rock and soul. Most of the guys have varied backgrounds, but all were brought up on rock from the sixties up to the present. Of special note is Mark Chisnell, keyboardist for the band, who has a degree in piano performance and this is one of the many features that make the band great. In addition, three of members sing, providing vocal harmony that is rather rare these days. Check out our website: www.fabulous52s.comto learn more about the band!
Personal Recording and Production
One of the things that Dave has been doing for decades is recording: recording himself, others and remote location venues. One of the main reasons that he got into it was mere practicality. Having played in many groups over the years, it seemed like many of the guys who worked with him got married and moved away, quit the music thing, or moved on to something else. Recording himself was the only answer to the problem, so he started getting more proficient on other instruments out of necessity and soon learned that it helped his overall musical chops. It also gave him the complete freedom to do whatever he wanted without creative interference from other musicians.

Vocal harmony has always intrigued Dave, but he has been known to dig many styles such as hard rock, country, classic rock, funk, pop, rhythm & blues, blues, acid rock, dance music, acoustic music, and the list goes on. “I don’t want to be pidgeon-holed into any one genre”, Dave says. “If it’s good, it’s good”!
