NYC is full of starving artists, surely someone will want to play our wedding?

We need to hire an affordable NYC musician to play at our wedding. Ideally it would be a banjo player but I will settle for something traditional like a violinist. We're on a shoestring budget. DJ recommendations are fine, too.

That's pretty much it. I wanted this guy
, who plays at the Bedford Ave platform, but he's not getting back to my emails. Where should we start looking? I'm worried about pursuing most traditional routes because there's such a huge mark-up for anything wedding related. We don't have much money to spare, but I'm leery of just putting on an iPod and hoping the playlist suits the crowd.
I'm a big fan of indie folk music, but anyone who can learn one or two new songs and basically keep the crowd lively during cocktail hour would be most excellent.
