Music legend Stevie Wonder, standup comedian Jerry Seinfeld and country trio Rascal Flatts are lined up to perform this summer at the Chumash Casino Resort in Santa Ynez.

The three acts will perform in July in the 1,400-seat Samala Showroom, according to Mike Traphagen, public relations specialist at the casino in northern Santa Barbara County.

Rascal Flatts takes the stage July 14. The Grammy Award-winning group is best known for the songs “What Hurts the Most” and “Bless the Broken Road.”

Seinfeld will bring his unique brand of observational humor July 21 to Santa Ynez for two shows.

As the star and co-creator of the popular and influential sitcom “Seinfeld,” he won three Golden Globe Awards and an Emmy Award. More recently, he’s found success as the creator and host of the Emmy-nominated Web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”

Performing on July 24 is Wonder, whose work as a composer, performer, producer and civil rights activist has earned him a record 25 Grammys as well as a Presidential Medal of Freedom and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame.

His sensational string of hits includes “Superstition,” “Sir Duke,” “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” and “I Just Called to Say I Love You.”

News of the concerts comes as the casino nears completion of its $165 million expansion project, which will increase its gaming room space while adding food outlets, spa services and hotel rooms, Traphagen said. Work is scheduled to be finished May 20.

Tickets for Rascal Flatts’ July 14 concert cost $95 to $175, while admission to Seinfeld’s shows costs $75 to $155. Admission to Wonder’s July 24 concert is $175 to $295.

Tickets for all three shows go on sale at 10 a.m. June 2.
