Emilio Sandoval

Victory Outreach Rancho Cordova Worship Team/ Soul Express

Born in Hayward, CA but raised in Sacramento, CA, Emilio Sandoval started playing and learning to play the drums at the age of 11 years old when he started going to Victory Outreach Rancho Cordova. He studied music at Cordova High School band for 2 years under teacher Kevin Sims and instructors Michael Austin, Mario Melo, Alex Jenkins. There is where he learned how to play with musicianship, play rudiments, and also to read music. Since then, he became the main drummer for Victory Outreach Rancho Cordova, where he found his rhythm, ear for music, and most of all how to use the drums to praise the Lord with. Emilio has and been learning under Bay Area Drummer/ Percussionist Isaac “Ike” Arositgui and through his example-ship has found a passion for Gospel music. Since moving to Reno, NV about a year ago, he has became the main drummer for Victory Outreach Reno and where he had been inspired to play Reggae and more Gospel music. Emilio is blessed and privileged to be endorsed by Soultone Cymbals and looks forward to greater opportunities with Soultone and his Church. I’ve recently in the past 2 years moved back to Sacramento and live in the city of Rancho Cordova. Since moving back I’ve back involved in my church Victory Outreach Rancho Cordova worship team and play every week for the church. Along with having the amazing opportunity to join the band Soul Express that is based out of San Jose ,CA. This band plays Christian Oldies music. We’ve played for outreach events in Stockton, Watsonville, and much more.
