K Sterling and the 85 Silver Band
Raising Awareness and Funds for the Bring Them Home Foundation
Sat, Dec 4, 20217:30 pm
Led by front man, K. Sterling, and formed in early 2019, The 85SILVER Band is West Central Wisconsin’s newest six-piece country group. Kyle, a combat infantryman, battled through years of post-war issues and alcohol dependency. Now he strives to live sober and be a positive influence for others who struggle with mental health and addiction. His pursuit of songwriting and country music began as a form of self-therapy and quickly morphed into a structured set of ambitions and goals. With an uncanny sense of tenacity, he is driven to succeed despite obstacles that stand in his way.
Using their music and any platform it provides, 85SILVER’s long-term mission is to bring transitional housing to local veterans discharged from inpatient mental health treatment at the Tomah VAMC. In 2021, Kyle, and two other board members, will be forming the Bring Them Home Foundation. The 85SILVER Band will be an operating arm of the non-profit and will serve to promote and raise funds in support of the mission for many years to come. In the short term, the Foundation plans to award financial assistance grants to disadvantaged vets on a path to recovery. There couldn’t be a better group of musicians, and people, that joined Kyle in his effort to help veterans who stand in a place where he once stood.
