With green lights twinkling on his face, Jammin’ Jim Gavin slips on a pair of sunglasses before grabbing a blow-up guitar and jumping to his feet to rock out to “Inside Out” by Eve 6.

This is how the local DJ spends most of his weeknights — air guitaring to top-charting tunes with locals who like to head out and let loose on karaoke nights at restaurants and bars such as Cactus Mexican Restaurant in Woodbridge or Garry’s Lounge in Lodi.
