This will check Sheet1 if the name in A1 exists in Col A of Sheet2:
=IF(COUNTIF(Sheet2!A:A,Sheet1!A1)>0,Sheet1!A1,"")

It can be amended, depending on what you are comparing to what.
I am not entirely clear from the details you provided.

Please see my attached example. Every test with a value of 1 appears in both lists...Demo.xlsx

=COUNTIF('Blues Rock 1'!$B$2:$B$83;$B2)

In reality, you only have to check one of the two lists!
