A barbershop quartet comprised of Manteca High students has made their mark during the past school year from singing their rendition of the National Anthem at area events to a talent show and end of the year concert.

The Buff Tones are sponsored by the “Fourmost” adult barbershop quartet out of Stockton with Mantecan Marc Jantzen serving as a mentor to the MHS students who are also under the direction of MHS choir director Marty Monaghan.

Jantzen pointed out that this is a group of young men who have found time to sing while also participating in many other school activities such as track, tennis and school plays.

It is made up of two juniors, one sophomore and one senior.  The lead is Ian Floirendo, bass Jordan Canyon, tenor Dan Rohovit and baritone Patrick Ho who sang together in the 2009-2110 school year.

The boys sang most recently at the 99 Speedway where they opened the event with the singing of the National Anthem.  They have also sang the Star Spangled Banner at a Stockton Ports baseball home game, UOP sporting events and at the Manteca Senior Center Veterans’ Day celebration.

The Buff Tones also took part in a holiday concert, a school talent show and their school’s end of the year concert.

The adults’ barbershop singers, part of the Stockton Portsmen Barbershop Chorus, also sponsor two other barbershop quartets in the Manteca Unified School District – one with two boys and two girls at Manteca High and another at Lathrop High School.
