As a late spring evening eases its way toward sunset, Anthony Quinn Carpanzano, better known as “Quinn,” watches as the first of the fans arrive for a night of original music in Stamford. He’s set it up to feature a local act, one from Brooklyn, N.Y., and another from Wisconsin.
“The thing is when you come here, it is only music,” he says, as he waits near the loading dock at Amadeus Piano Company in Stamford. “There are no dart boards, no pool tables, no TVs. You don’t know who you are going to see.”
