A small, cheerful, talented group of strangers will run into my girlfriend & I somewhere in NYC and break into song to help me propose to her. How do I find these fine folks?

I plan to propose to my girlfriend in a couple of months. I live in Manhattan and she will be visiting. We have talked about it, so the answer is not in doubt; I just want to make it memorable. Here's what I'm thinking: We are out in Central Park or somewhere, chance upon some 3-5 people who randomly break into a song or something, telling her how awesome I am and how she should totally marry me. It's all vague at this point, but I guess if I find some creative types, they would know where to go with this. So my question is:
1. Is there a better place than craigslist(/gigs/creative) where I could advertise this?
2. I don't know how much this should cost, but $300-500 for 10-15 person-hours of time (including suggesting a song and meeting us at a pre-arranged time/place) of almost-professionals, of which there must be many in this city, sounds about right to me. Is that too low an estimate?
