Performing with Mediocre Vocals vs Instrumentals

I play guitar with another guy (sometimes a conga player) at some local coffee shops, a small brewery tasting room, and sometime other small spaces. We struggle with vocals, the other guy is worse than I am vocally. I have come up with some decent instrumentals with melodic leads, we write lyrics to and work on songwriting but I feel like things are easier for us instrumentally (and sometimes I feel like lyrics and singing are a burden where my voice can't translate the emotion I want that my fingers can). I know people like to hear vocals and instrumentals are basically background music but I dont really care either way, I just like playing.

Here is a quick sloppy rendition of Tears In Heaven to give an example of my point. One pass with vocals and the second as instrumental. This was just a quick capture on my iPad with a Apogee Mic.
