Many were AOL and Hotmail, which our hosting company claimed they were aware of and were dealing with.  However, many were not either of those and a couple were actual band members, so we know they weren't blocking them themselves!

It's quite easy for an innocent person to end up in some black list or 
other thanks to a joe job and this may be what has happened. Another 
possibility is that some words or phrases in your mail may be trigerring 
off some spam filter, it may be a good idea to put your mail through 
spamassasin or something similar *before* you send it out so that you 
protect against this.

hope this helps.
